Blank canvas venues

For those who prefer to take care of everything when organising an event, a blank canvas venue is often the best option and London is home to a pretty fantastic array of these spaces. SquareMeal’s range of blank canvas venues in London spans north, south, east and west and offers a range of spaces including large studios and art galleries, each offering great versatility and excellent facilities for events of any nature

While some parties require all the pomp of a grand hall or a stately home, others are much more suited to a blank canvas venue where you can really put your own stamp on things. In fact, don’t tell the others but blank canvas venues in London are some of our favourite spots to throw a soiree across the capital. There’s something so satisfying about being able to completely take control of the aesthetics of your gathering or celebration to end up with a look that is unique to your vision. Over the years we’ve found that the best spots for these kinds of events are neutral spaces that offer blank walls, clean lines and wide-open spaces.

Thanks to their very nature, blank canvas venues are perfect for pretty much any event. We particularly like them for exhibitions or presentations when you want the focus of the attendees firmly on whatever it is you’re showing off, but they're also great for work functions and even weddings. Most of our venue partners who offer blank canvas spaces are well-used to people looking to use their rooms for display spaces, and often offer the use of walls as part of the hire. If you’re intent on hanging displays or artwork, just make sure to check with your venue lead before you proceed, to ensure all your requirements can be met.
