Introducing Blank Canvas Venues as this month’s HeadBox Hotspot, perfect venues when you’re on the hunt for the best dry hire venues London has to offer!

Blank Canvas have venues all over the city, from repurposed railway arches to revamped galleries, all with a blank canvas finish so you can really make your mark.
Every now and again, we like to show off some of our favourite Spaces, handpicked by the HeadBox team. This time around we’ve dedicated our HeadBox Hotspot to Blank Canvas, a company who specialises in offering exciting and unusual venues in London that you can really put your stamp on! All these venues come with amazing dry hire options, allowing you to completely make the Space and the event your own.  We’ve handpicked some of our favourites to show you, so without further ado, take a look at some of the best dry hire venues London has to offer.
Nine Adam Street
First on the list of our favourite Blank Canvas venues in London is Nine Adam Street. Situated in the centre of The Strand, this top London venue was designed by Robert Adams and boasts exposed brickwork and gorgeous statement arches spread over two spacious floors.
This sleek venue can accommodate up to 250 Guests for a standing reception making it perfect for product launches, drink receptions, press days, networking events or corporate parties! And with breakout Spaces, a VIP area and private entrance, a kitchen and reception area you can be sure to have everything you’ll need for a showstopping event.

Old Street Showrooms

We can’t showcase the best of the Blank Canvas venues without including the Old Street Showrooms. This exciting Blank Canvas venue was originally a warehouse for the iconic Stüssy brand. Retaining its industrial feel with whitewashed walls, exposed brickwork, concrete flooring and plenty of natural light, Old Street Showrooms has perfected the shabby chic aesthetic. This spot makes for a perfect backdrop for any event, and the minimalist venue design allows you to have complete control of branding to really make your mark.
The Old Street Showrooms features two main event Spaces as well as a kitchen area, a small storage room and an outside smoking area on each floor. The whole venue can accommodate up to 200 standing Guests, making it ideal for press days, showrooms, exhibitions, product launches, fashion events, presentations, and a complete array of different styles of events.

Canvas Works

Not only are Blank Canvas pros at event Spaces, they also have fantastic facilities to use for photo and film shoots like Canvas Works. This venue was once a set of Victorian archways, now converted into over 8,000 square feet of studio and event Space by the Blank Canvas team.
Situated in the heart of Shoreditch, the venue’s interior is truly inspiring with beautiful original exposed brickwork and large wooden doors. With two separate Spaces available for hire, linked with a large reception area, they really have something for everyone. Canvas Works also offers an array of facilities on site including a lounge Café and showers as well as hair and makeup rooms so you’ll be fully equipped for a full day behind or in front of the camera.
Alternatively, roll up the photography backdrop and you have yet another amazing blank canvas venue to hire for all sorts of different events from corporate networking receptions to product launches. This versatile venue has it all.
