The Roundhouse is a place for everyone, and we don’t want money to hold anyone back from getting involved.

So if there’s anything that could stop you from attending projects or events that could be helped by financial support – including help with project costs, transport and childcare – then let us know: we are here to help with bursaries designed to support you in taking the next step in developing your creative skills.

Bursaries can be used for all sorts of things, such as:

  • Roundhouse project fees
  • Emerging Artist Membership (EAM) Fees
  • Hire fees for rehearsal spaces and studio facilities, as part of your EAM
  • Transport expenses within London (for travel to and from the Roundhouse only)
  • Materials required for a Roundhouse project
  • Childcare
  • 1:1 support worker, carer or interpreter

The quickest way to request financial support is to ask a referral agency to fill out the bursary application form on your behalf. Examples of who can act as your referrer include:

  • Teacher
  • Youth worker
  • Coach
  • Pastor
  • Support worker
  • GP
  • Or any professional that has been working with you to support you

Please download and read the relevant guidance document on the Downloads section of this page before completing an application form.

Please email your completed application form to the Info & Advice Base or post it to Bursary Scheme, Roundhouse, Chalk Farm Road, London NW1 8EH.

If you need any help completing the form, please email us and we’ll be happy to help.

Once we receive your application, we’ll contact you to make an appointment. We may ask you to bring some documents with you to this meeting.

If you’d rather speak in person, we run Bursary Drop-in on almost every Thursday from 6pm – 8:30pm in the Roundhouse Studios. It’s first come first served so we recommend getting here early. You can email our Visitor Services team to confirm we are running drop-in this week.

If you are already in the Studios, do stop by to say hello. We’re based opposite Midi Suite 10.

Please Note: If you receive a bursary, no cash will be given directly to you. Because we receive lots of applications for bursaries and the Roundhouse has limited money available, we ask that you only apply for a bursary if you genuinely need it – this helps us to keep the bursary scheme fair for everyone.
