'Blank canvas' is a term that gets thrown around a lot in the events industry and really it does what it says on the tin. They can be a brilliant option for brand and product launches, team building, conferences and more. And, with a certain amount of imagination, these spaces can be totally transformed into a creative dream.
But how do you turn those dreams into a reality? Let's take a look at Carousel, a brilliant blank canvas that prides itself on providing experiences.
Carousel boasts almost 8,000 sq. ft of events space across two sites, the original in Marylebone and the newest in Seven Dials. The versatile spaces can accommodate events of all different shapes and sizes, dry hire or bespoke. But what sets Carousel apart is its ability to offer a wide range of extras that you can add on to your event to make it totally your own.
Split over three beautifully designed floors, Carousel has a space for every occasion. Upstairs is light and airy making it perfect for smaller parties, exhibitions and meetings. With a stripped back, polished concrete floor and an industrial finish, Downstairs is home to bigger events including weddings, conferences and private dinners.
No two days at Carousel are ever the same. From rotating chef residencies to its growing reputation as a creative hub, there is always something happening.
The venue plays host to an ever-changing line-up of art exhibitions, video installations, film screenings, spoken word poetry, live acoustic sets, theatre workshops, yoga brunches and more.
There is also an extensive list of workshops available from candle-making to wildlife drawing and wine tasting each week. Why not include one in your next event? Carousel will work with you and their workshop hosts to match the perfect experience with your event objectives.
Perfect for team building; why not develop those all-important relationships with your colleagues whilst creating your own terrarium or perhaps whipping up some homemade pasta. You'll leave creatively stimulated, full and with a host of new workmates.
