Part of The Last Word, a festival where words come alive.

Important Information

Unfortunately The Last Word Festival, due to take place at the Roundhouse from Saturday 11 April – Thursday 18 June, has been cancelled.

Alongside many other arts organisations, we have been faced with difficult decisions about our current and future programme of work amid the ever-changing situation.

If you have booked tickets to see Unbraided we will update you with more information in our follow up email soon as we can.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

As a charity, the cancellation of productions that form part of our artistic programme and the resulting loss of ticket sales will significantly impact Roundhouse Trust and the work that we deliver. We understand that all of our audience members have completely different financial circumstances and that now is an uncertain time for us all; however, we are asking our customers to consider donating the value of the ticket and booking fee to help us continue to secure the future of our charity.

Unbraided is work in progress, supported by the Roundhouse Resident Artist programme.
