Renovating the Roundhouse by James Reader

Film maker James Reader (and his drones) made three visits to the Roundhouse.

The first was before the start of our renovation programme in January 2019. The second, in June 2019, saw the building programme in full swing.

His final visit was in July 2021, showing a very different Roundhouse.

A Team Effort

Literally hundreds of people have been involved in reviving the Roundhouse; from apprentices working on the resoration of the fabric of the building, to people taking part in the  creation of our visitor programme. 

Here’s a small selection of images that document the work that has been done to bring the Roundhouse to life.
