First time coming to this venue, came to see Frank Turner on his "lost evenings" festival. Very good venue, lots of space to get to where you need to be, although even if you are at the back you still see the stage. The pillars can be a little bit view obstructing but it adds to the quirkiness of the... More

I've seen Blondie here twice and several other bands; it's my favourite venue. Nostalgically as I lived next to it as a young kid, but also because it has so much character and history. It's totally unique.

A small intimate venue. We were here to see Caro Emerald - I can;t imagine getting this up close and personal in any other venue. There is a bar at the back of the venue, so grab a drink,dance, chat and enjoy great music!

First visit on Saturday night to see Caro Emerald great gig, lovely atmosphere, Caro & the band were fantastic, been a long time since I've seen a band enjoy themselves so much on stage. Only thing that spoilt it was getting out, this really needs to be looked at, we hung back for quite a while but it was still... More

Easy to get to - take the tube to Chalk Farm Road and it's round the corner. It's quite small so concerts are more intimate and the whole building is very interesting. Big positive is having enough facilities - I recently visited for a concert and it was the first time I didn't have to queue for hours to get... More

I visited this venue last night with my boyfriend to see 'it's not yet midnight.' The show was beautiful and so impressive in delivery, but The Roundhouse serves as a perfect setting. The staff and volunteers are so polite and know their subject and were always willing to help. Thank you for making it such a great evening.

What an amazing show! Incredible acrobatics. Non stop action all around the stage, so much going on. Flying, balancing, the strength that it must take; the performers seem to glide so easily. A solid hour of fantastic entertainment. First time visiting the Roundhouse , great performance space.

Great place for a gig. However, the band in question, The Bare Naked Ladies, were not at their usual best.
