The Roundhouse, which began as a Victorian train engine turntable in the 1800’s, has grown and evolved over the decades transforming into various guises such as a gin warehouse, a notorious 60’s gig venue hosting the likes of Jimi Hendrix and The Doors and now in its current form as one of London’s most iconic performing arts venues.
The venue's round shape creates a naturally welcoming environment for all types of event, whether planners are organising a dinner, drinks reception, launch party, awards ceremony, conference, meeting or performances. The Roundhouse boasts state-of-the-art sound and lighting, ample power provision and technical support. Although the building has much character, it can also be approached as a blank canvas as there is ample time for elaborate production set-ups. The iconic Main Space is available to hire for a variety of events: from receptions and parties for up to 1,800, to conferences for up to 1,500, and dinners for up to 850. The Circle Balcony is perfect for holding drinks receptions prior to the main event, with its fantastic vantage point overlooking the breath-taking Main Space.
