What's on

Our opening summer programme is all about introductions – to our building, to our very own kind of activity programme, and to our city…
Our programme uses the Roundhouse as a launchpad, so expect something a little different.
Volunteer-powered city walks, canal-based kayaking, and, of course, an introduction to the Roundhouse.
And for those who like to go their own way, a range of self-guided tours and trails.
