The Roundhouse is one of the most incredible live performance spaces in the world where some of the biggest names in music, theatre, circus and spoken word take to the stage every day.
Underneath the main space, the Roundhouse offers 11-25 year olds the chance to develop their skills and confidence through creativity, offering opportunities to get involved in open-access music, performing arts and media projects in Paul Hamlyn Roundhouse Studios. These projects run year-round at all levels through a range of termly, holiday and year-long programmes for young people to engage with independently. We also work closely with schools, pupil referral units, colleges, and a range of youth and community services.
The Roundhouse is calling for artist tutors to join our growing youth programme to deliver artistic projects with young people across our programmes.

• Music (including band development, song writers, production, vocalists, DJs)
