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.

Roundhouse Staff

Chris Maher


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.

Anna Jukes


Anna loves project management, organisation and generally getting things in order. She is responsible for setting up and leading on the day-to-day management of the building. If ever you need her, you’ll normally find her buried in a spreadsheet somewhere.

Keith Wraight

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.

Charlotte Kulidzan

Programme and operations

Charlotte likes to get creative and to be hands on. She helps to research, develop and deliver the visitor programme for Roundhouse Birmingham. Charlotte hopes that Roundhouse Birmingham becomes a place for people to make memorable experiences that engage with Birmingham’s rich heritage, arts and culture.

Jade Morgan

Volunteering and Community

Jade is passionate about connecting communities, positive social action and bringing people together. She is responsible for the volunteer programme, getting the local community involved in all things Roundhouse, and on occasion, hosts awesome virtual quiz nights.

Katarina Kovacic

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.

Charlotte Atkins

Visitor Reception Assistant

Charlotte looks after our Visitor Centre which means keeping on top of our Roundhouse merchandising lines and working with local creators and artists to promote their products in our Local Birmingham range. Charlotte also works with our Welcome & Events volunteers, meeting and assisting our customers to ensure they have a great visitor experience and a lasting impression to share with their friends and families.

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.
