2023 | West Midlands Tourism Awards

Winner: ‘New Tourism Business of the Year’

We’re delighted to have been named New Tourism Business of the Year by judges from West Midlands Tourism, which recognises new tourism businesses in the region. We were really pleased to have received recognition for our people-first approach – “the judges were impressed by the care and thought gone into the people who they engage with, including their customers, volunteers, and partners”.

2022 | LABC Building Excellence Awards

Regional Winner: ‘Best public or community building – 2022’

In 2022, Roundhouse Birmingham won the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Building Excellence Award for Best Public or Community Building in the West Midlands region.

2022 | West Midlands Tourism Awards

Winner: ‘Experience of the Year’

In March 2022, our kayak tours were crowned ‘Experience of the Year’ at the West Midlands Tourism Awards supported by the West Midlands Growth Company. Staff members and volunteers enjoyed a great evening at the awards event celebrating the win for our Bustling Birmingham Kayak Tour.

Huge thanks to our volunteers; their hard work and dedication is what makes our kayak tours so memorable. Thank you also to all of the visitors who joined us for a fantastic year in 2021.

2021 | Birmingham Civic Society Awards

Shortlisted: ‘Renaissance Award’

We’re thrilled that our project to bring new life to the Roundhouse has been recognised by Birmingham Civic Society.

Their Renaissance Award recognises the most successful conservation projects completed in the city, be it the restoration of a building, public space, or structure. The award appreciates and values a variety of projects, whether that be a swimming baths, a restaurant or museum.

2021 | Westside Excellence Awards

Winner: ‘Excellence in Heritage and Arts’

In 2021, Westside BID celebrated the achievements of some of their valued members through a newly formed Westside Excellence Awards. Roundhouse Birmingham were honoured to be recognised for our excellent work in history and heritage.
