On site

There will also be the café and several bars, as well as some events moving off-site to East London.

The Roundhouse is more than just a venue. Each year it helps 3000 11-25 year-olds from all backgrounds to realise their creative potential through opportunities in music, media and performing arts. Much of this work takes place in the Paul Hamlyn Roundhouse Studios - a dedicated creative centre for music and media production, broadcasting, performance and rehearsal, where young people work with industry professionals to learn and develop their skills.


This event does not have camping but there are a number of hotels, hostels and guest houses in the area.

More information will be here when available.
