In 2006, we opened our first Strummerville resource at the Roundhouse in Chalk Farm, London.
What we’ve funded
The Strummerville Studio is an 11m” studio in the Roundhouse Studios that is used for workshops and tuition as well as individual practice. It is decorated with some of Joe’s own handwritten lyrics and memorabilia from The Clash and permanently contains a mixer, amps, speakers, stands, and other equipment and instruments.
Who is it for?
The Roundhouse Studios is for young people 13-25 years old. Unlike typical arts venues with an education department, the Roundhouse Studios is fundamental to the ethos of the whole organisation, providing a space not only for creative thinking, but also state-of-the-art facilities for accessible, affordable and practical training for all types of young people from diverse backgrounds and situations. Many of the young people who take part in projects at the Roundhouse are socially excluded in some way and do not normally have access to creative opportunities.
