The rebirth of the Roundhouse was the culmination of more than a decades hard work, led by philanthropist Torquil Norman. The transformation was nothing short of remarkable, and whilst the Roundhouses artistic plans include circuses, music festivals, large scale theatre, multimedia festivals, installations, talks and screenings it is the organisations focus on young people that makes it a leader . The Roundhouse places young people at its heart, involving them at every level from membership of the Board of Directors to generating market campaigns. Kick the Tyres, Light the Fires is the story of Torquil Normans extraordinary life, leading up to the acquisition and the launch of the Roundhouse, as well as a series of reflections on how the welfare state, taxation and prison systems can be reformed to give disadvantaged young people a fighting chance of success.
