Get Involved

Roundabout is a registered charity providing dramatherapy services across London, working with some of the most disadvantaged people in the community, aged 3 to 102.

This year Roundabout celebrates 36 years of using drama therapeutically to help those in great need. Please help us to provide 36 more years of dramatherapy for the community.

There are several ways in which you can help the charity continue with our valuable work:

Three Peaks

It was fantastic to get the opportunity to complete the 3 peaks challenge. The stand out memory was having to struggle up the final peak of Snowdon in the driving rain with about 5 hours of sleep.

Three Peaks Team raised £5,210.38

Wolf Run

We’re running the Wolf Run for Roundabout because they are a fantastic charity that does some incredible work for lots of people. They are dedicated to raising awareness of the benefits of Dramatherapy and are a team of great caring people!

Central School of Speech and Drama graduates raised £1,260

Dad on Bike

If I manage to cycle 5km a day, I hope to be finished by the time it is safe for me to go back to the gym.
