The Roundhouse is launching a new co-working space and development programme for young freelancers working in the creative industries.

Roundhouse Works opens its doors on 19th June next to the iconic music venue located in Chalk Farm, North London.

It will offer membership to up to 15,000 people each year and is open to those aged 18 to 30 who are working as freelancers or entrepreneurs in the creative industries.

Areas of focus range from music and architecture to marketing, web development, and beyond. Resident Advisor reports that 60 per cent of members will be drawn from disadvantaged areas.

Alongside providing a co-working space with private meeting rooms and more, Roundhouse Works will offer free workshops, talks and events via its Self Made Series to help with career development. Workshops and courses will encompass music production, performance arts, podcasting and the music business.

It will also host social events to help members network and mindfulness sessions such as yoga to boost wellbeing. Free hot drinks and fast Wi-Fi are also promised as pack of the membership package.

The Roundhouse raised £8million to fund the venture from private and corporate donations. Roundhouse Works' brochure states that it was additionally supported using public funding from Arts Council England.

Membership starts at £25 a year and co-working packages from £30 per month. For more information about what's on offer and eligibility to use the facilities, visit here
