Description

#ThanksToYou

This festive season, we'll be joining a range of participating National Lottery funded visitor attractions across the UK in saying ‘thanks’ to people who have raised money for good causes by buying a lottery ticket.

On 12 December, we're offering National Lottery players a chance to explore the Roundhouse, prior to its renovation in early 2018.

The tour will be lead by a member of Roundhouse Birmingham's research team, and will also take in a visit to the towpath, where you'll visit historic narrowboats manned by Canal and River Trust volunteers. Following the tour, there will be an opportunity to chat to the Roundhouse project team over refreshments about what's in store in 2018.

Attendance on the tour is free but must be registered in advance. Simply pre-register via the link on this page and present your National Lottery ticket on arrival.

The Roundhouse is currently in a pre-restoration state, with some steep and sometimes slightly uneven cobbled surfaces. So please do wrap up warm, and wear sensible shoes.

Thanks to National Lottery Players, the Roundhouse will undergo a renovation in early 2018.
