Adem Holness

The Roundhouse is an iconic music and performance venue that also works with over 3,000 11-25 year-olds every year, offering them opportunities in music, media and the performing arts.


Adem sits on the Roundhouse board of trustees as one of two ‘young trustees’ and so is involved in high level decision making and strategy for the Roundhouse and our youth programme. Adem is also a vocalist and music leader from North London.


Since graduating from The Brit School for Performing Arts in 2008 and completing his music degree in 2012, Adem has gone on to perform at venues such as Wembley Arena, The O2 Arena and The Royal Festival Hall.
