Spring term sorted for creative kids in London

Roundhouse announces spring term programme of affordable activities for aspiring creatives ages 11-17

Young people aged 11-17 are invited to explore their creative outlets in the upcoming round of opportunities at the Roundhouse.

Known as a legendary venue, the Roundhouse also delivers hundreds of creative projects and opportunities for young people each year, at some of the most affordable prices available in London. For over 20 years, the Roundhouse has been providing life changing creative opportunities for young people.

From January 2024, the Paul Hamlyn Roundhouse Studios will host a range of programmes and workshops centred around music, performing arts, and media. It’s the perfect after-school or weekend activity that allows young people to try a new craft and meet new friends.

With workshops costing as little as £2, the lineup offers young people invaluable access to the arts in a safe and welcoming environment, taught by professional tutors with wrap-around youth support.

Whether it’s short-term exploration of a creative outlet, or a long-term journey in carving a pathway outside of the classroom, there are opportunities for everyone.
