The Roundhouse, Derby is an incredible series of truly iconic buildings that have world-renowned status in railway history. It was originally built in 1839 by four rival rail companies, including North Midland Railway (NMR) for whom George Stephenson and his son Robert were engineers.

In 2008, The Roundhouse, a Grade II listed building and other associated buildings on the site, were sympathetically restored and repaired using the William Morris principle of ‘honest repair’, along with two newly constructed buildings which have been designed to blend in with existing structures.

Opening its doors in 2009, The Roundhouse has played host to a variety of events, including BBC’s Spending Review, CAMRA Beer Festivals, The Derby Telegraph Business Awards and The Fabulous Places Seasonal Markets.

The Roundhouse itself can accommodate up to 2500 guests, with spacious modern grounds and award-winning accessibility. Situated in Derby, it boasts excellent rail, road and air links, with bags of potential and charm.

The Roundhouse provides an architecturally impressive space of 1,264m2 and offers a variety of configurations, from theatre through to exhibitions, cabaret and banquets. It is an ideal space for award ceremonies or celebratory dinners for up to 680 people or even concerts and theatre productions for up to 1000 people. Adjoining spaces such as the Carriage Shop Theatre and the Carriage Shop Library seat from 120 to 300.

The Roundhouse is a magnificent event space, offering a spectacular backdrop and the flexibility to accommodate a variety of functions on a truly impressive scale.
