“Learn from industry experts, rub shoulders with those in the know, develop your skills and make connections with a community of like-minded artists” a press release for the programme says.

During the selection process, shortlisted applicants will be invited to audition for final places. Workshops take place on the last Monday evening of each month, which applicants must be available for.

Applications are open to musicians aged 18-25 until May, 7.

The performing arts and concert venue also hosts several opportunities for creatives aged 11-30, including Young Creative Memberships and workshops held throughout the year at Roundhouse Works.

Head of Events, Rhiân Pressley, said: “We’re advising anyone with a specific date in mind to book at least 12 months in advance as we’re looking at a 42% increase next year in confirmed contracts”.
