Our story

Canvas is the newly-named creative arm of the ESC Events group – one of the UK’s leading events companies. Over the last 16 years we have planned or produced, staged or supported some 3,000 events in all corners of the globe.

ESC Events will continue to offer support services to the events industry on a bespoke basis whilst Canvas will provide the creative consultancy and full-service implementation that companies, private clients and wedding parties need for their events.

The name may be new but the people behind it aren’t. Our top team has more than 70 years event experience under their belts, and are still brimming with bright ideas, energy and enthusiasm. In fact, we handle some 150 events and employ around 2000 staff to help entertain more than 15,000 guests in a typical year.

Busy without doubt – but there is always time in our diaries if you have an event in mind…


Our success has been honed by years of planning, managing events and serving clients. Here are some examples of what we can achieve. Click on a picture to go to the related gallery.
