Rise up for the Roundhouse Gala

On Wednesday 20 March 2024, we welcomed celebrities and supporters to a lavish Gala evening that raised an incredible £1 million for our charitable work with 11-30 year olds. 

Rise Up for the Roundhouse was hosted by Ade Adepitan, and guests were treated to performances by Melanie C, Simon Le Bon, Shaznay Lewis, Trevor Horn and his band, and Gary Kemp, who also led this year’s Gala committee as Chair. Artists performed alongside incredible talent from the Roundhouse’s young creatives programme, including Celine Love, Amy Gadiaga, and Maureen Onwunali.

Other guests included Sally and Ronnie Wood, June Sarpong, Nick and Annette Mason, and Marina Abramović and Todd Eckert.

Guests were treated to drinks and canapés on arrival, followed by a seated three-course dinner crafted by Bubble Food paired with Boutinot wines. The evening was sponsored by Cubitt House and David Lloyd Clubs and supported by Frame Factory London.
