The Roundhouse in Camden is one of the most iconic venues in the UK. Situated in a grade II listed former railway engine shed, the venue attracts some of the biggest names in music. After falling into disuse before the second world war, the building was reopened in 1964 as a performing arts venue holding the Centre 42 Theatre Company. After the Camden London Borough Council took control of the building in 1983, there was a transition period of use and disuse, before a full renovation in 2004 took place. On 1 June 2006 the venue was reopened as the Roundhouse, and has continued as such ever since.
