Meet the Roundhouse team
Our team at the Roundhouse are working hard behind the scenes to open Roundhouse in 2020 and make it a special place for you to visit in the heart of Birmingham’s canal super-highways. We will have more opportunities to join our team soon, so watch this space and our social media channels, for vacancies.
Chris works with the team to develop our programme of heritage activities, events and partner projects. He has been told he goes on a bit, but he’s full of very interesting stuff.
Active Outdoors Officer
Keith doesn’t like sitting down but does like water. Quite why he likes kayaking we don’t know, but he gets people out and about, being active and learning about the places where they do this and it’s not always on the water! Keith embraces the Roundhouse’s hashtag #seethecitydifferently by taking people to quiet, unseen places that are different to your usual sight-seeing tours.

Active Outdoors Coordinator
Kat loves working with people, researching about possible outdoors tours and developing our active programme together with Keith. You’ll normally find Kat on the water, in a kayak, or cycling down the tow path, telling her super fun jokes.

Board of Trustees
The wider Roundhouse family
Roundhouse Birmingham is supported by our fantastic Board of Trustees. Currently made up of members from our parent organisations, the Canal & River Trust and the National Trust, the Board lead Roundhouse Birmingham’s strategic direction.
Alongside the Board of Trustees, Roundhouse Birmingham is grateful for support and guidance from staff at both Canal & River Trust and National Trust who have worked tirelessly since 2013 to plan and implement the full-scale renovation of the Roundhouse, and to create a sustainable business to ensure the survival of this beautiful architectural gem.
