This week, the Roundhouse Trust will be taking over the Roundhouse for an evening of music and entertainment to raise funds for the Roundhouse’s charitable work which transforms the lives of young people through creativity.
On Thursday (March 16), world renowned artists such as Roger Daltrey CBE, Ronnie Wood and Jesse Wood, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Imelda May and many more.
Celebrities from around the worlds of music, fashion and art have donated prizes such as a tour of Abbey Road studios, #1 of 100 limited edition lithographs signed by Bjork, a signed guitar from Years & Years and a recording session at Sticky Studios with Jake Gosling. Full details can be found here.
Over the last 10 years, the biennial Roundhouse Gala has rained almost £3m to support the Roundhouse’s work with 11-25 year olds. Each year they give over 3,000 young people the chance to develop their skills and confidence through creativity.
Marcus Davey, chief executive and artistic director of the Roundhouse said: “The Gala is a real highlight in our calendar – it’s a fantastic moment for us to celebrate our rich history as a performing arts venue with some of the world’s best talent.
“But most importantly it gives a stage to young performers starting out on their career and raises vital funds for those who use our studios. We really couldn’t do this without the generous support of all the performers, our committee, Lavazza and everyone who has donated an incredible prize.”
