Events will play a key role in helping to ensure the survival of iconic venues across London, a new survey reveals.
The research by the Unique Venues of London claims that events are vital to keeping London venues alive.
Venues in the capital rely heavily on events to maintain their architecturally renowned buildings, the survey also shows.
"In hiring venues like ours, clients are providing valuable support to the conservation of our country's heritage," said Kensington Palace events manager Charlotte Winship.
"We receive no government or Crown funding and therefore rely on income derived from visitors, donors and venue hire. All revenue received from venue hire directly contributes to the conservation of Kensington Palace," she added.
The Unique Venues of London is made up of 60 member venues, including Imperial War Museum, The Royal Academy of Arts, Trinity House, Royal Albert Hall, 195 Piccadilly, Natural History Museum, Royal College of Physicians, The Wallace Collection, ZSL London Zoo and the Royal Courts of Justice.
