If the walls of the Roundhouse could talk, the anecdotes would be immense. The iconic London venue is where Andy Warhol performed his only play, where the world’s biggest bouncy castle was inflated indoors, where Antony Gormley’s ominous You figure stands surveying Camden’s crowds from the roof, and LSD-fuelled naked theatre was once a thing.
Now to celebrate its 50-year history as an avant-garde performance venue, the Roundhouse has launched a website collating accounts, images and recordings from gig goers, local residents and performers, telling stories of their Roundhouse experiences.
The venue has also delved into its archives to reveal an enormous collection of posters from across the decades, just a few of which are published exclusively here on It’s Nice That. The designers are unknown, expected to be friends and fans of the performers, and therefore remain anonymous. Nevertheless, they are gems.
