Constructed in 1846 as a turntable shed for the London and Birmingham railway, the Roundhouse – a Grade II-listed building – has a long and illustrious history, including spells as a liquor warehouse and long periods of disuse. But it came into its own as a legendary music venue in the '60s/'70s, hosting the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane and The Doors and staging the notorious 'Oh Calcutta'. Work on the extensive overhaul/refurbishment began in 2004 and it reopened in 2006 as a modern arts and mixed-media performance space with strong community bias. The main room benefits from a high domed ceiling and Victorian metal 'ribs' and regularly accommodates a staggering variety of acts, from A-ha to Bebel Gilberto, Foo Fighters and Paul Weller.
