Meet the Roundhouse team

Both staff and volunteers make up the team at Roundhouse Birmingham. See below to find out more about them, and our Join Us page for ways to join the team.

Roundhouse Staff

Anna- Roundhouse staff member



Anna loves project management, organisation and generally getting things in order. She is responsible for 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- Roundhouse staff member


Programming Manager

Keith 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.
