Last year we welcomed over 80,000 visitors to the Roundhouse and hosted an incredible 200 events. From weddings to parties, exhibitions to festivals, we’ve loved every minute!
Let’s take it back to 2017 and remember just a snippet of what went down.
We welcomed some visitors of the furry kind, thanks to the Big Bang Fair. They brought along tarantulas, snakes and not forgetting the meerkats (they were a big hit!). We transformed the space into an enchanting wedding venue on many occasions throughout the year. We’ve partied hard; Celebrating Success, Vivid Christmas parties, Pattonair Autumn Ball and that’s just to name a few! We’ve clapped, whooped and cheered as we’ve celebrated the achievements of individuals and businesses across the Midlands. We've welcomed absolutely thousands of visitors throughout the seasons for the Fabulous Places Markets and we've loved everyone one of them. With over 100 handpicked suppliers, delicious food, gorgeous gifts and accessories for the home and garden, jewellery, handmade products and much more - they're an absolute must for 2018!
2017 was a very special year for us, after all we launched our first ever event – Our Dirty Dancing Movie Night. The night had some serious atmosphere with everyone singing and dancing, we mean everyone (including us). It was such a success that we’ve decided to continue our movie nights and our next two have already created quite a buzz!
Throughout 2017, we heavily focused on hosting events which made a charitable difference and we continue to do so. Since working with Ultra White Collar Boxing, the Roundhouse played host to 5 charitable events, which have collectively helped to raise over £10 million to help beat cancer sooner.
We also hosted The Brain Game, a posh pub quiz to find the brainiest firm in Derbyshire with the event raising a total of £44,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support, as well as Pattonair’s Autumn Charity Ball which also raised a staggering £43,118.10 for NSPPC.
2017 has been amazing and we know 2018 is going to be even better. With new events lined up, and many in the pipeline, we’ve got a fantastic year lined up for you all.
So, what’s new for 2018?
Along with our much loved favourite events returning to the Roundhouse, we also have some new events lined up for you – Get a load of these!

We’ll also be throwing an after party too and encourage everyone to stay and have a dance!
Grease Movie Night, Saturday 3rd February
The award winning romantic comedy Grease is coming to the Roundhouse! Ticket price includes a complimentary drink on arrival, as well as plenty of time to indulge in American style food and cocktails before and during the showing.
