Roundhouse Birmingham was built in 1874 and was originally stables and stores. Designed by local architect W.H. Ward, the horseshoe shaped building quickly became a real landmark in the city, but over the last 10 years it has been falling into disrepair. Supporters have the opportunity to visit the Roundhouse and to hear more about the role it plays in Birmingham this summer.
The Grade ll* listed building will be revitalised and restored, offering a base from which to explore Birmingham's canal network, a cycle hire and repair workshop and a shared working space for conservation organisations.
Until work begins later this year, local people and visitors to the city will have the chance to explore Roundhouse through a variety of events. See the panels below for more information.
