    History of The Round House Arts Centre:

    The Round House Arts Centre was constructed in 1846, but at that time this site was used as steam engine repair place - in other words, it was a shed. However, this site soon became a warehouse and later in 1964, as a result of a movement by a trade union, the Round House eventually became a progressive arts venue. This is when several top rated artists performed at The Round House Arts Centre, including Peter Brook, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix and The Living Theatre of New York. However, in 2004, the Round House Arts Centre was closed down for redevelopment and £30 million budget was devoted for this cause. Finally, this site opened once again after redevelopment on June 1, 2006.
