The End Studios was a project that we raised funds for when we turned 10 in 2005, to encourage young people that might not otherwise get the chance to get involved in music. The studios are aimed at those with little or no access to music education and are located inside the new Roundhouse Studios in Camden.

The End Studios aim to create new opportunities in music for young people. The studios, focusing on music production and DJ skills, form part of a community-based creative centre.
Why did The End get involved?
Once we reached the grand old age of ten, we wanted to help strengthen the music community of the future, by focusing on those who need opportunities most. This was our starting point for setting up a recording studio to nurture young talent and to inspire those who may have become disillusioned by a more traditional academic education.
Where are the studios located?
Whilst searching for a suitable site, we discovered an opportunity to create the studios as part of a larger community-based creative centre for young people. This was at The Roundhouse which in 2005 / 2006 underwent major redevelopment, to include state-of-the-art facilities for music, theatre, film, dance, TV and new media, as well as a 3,300 capacity main performance space.
How is The End involved in the studios?
After completing the fundraising campaign, The End now lends its expertise, using music artists to mentor those wishing to learn. The results feed directly back into the next generation of artists and create opportunities for the music makers of the future.
When did the studios open?
The End Studios, along with the rest of the creative space at The Roundhouse in Camden, opened in the summer of 2006. The End raised £70,000 to create The End Studios as part of this new development.
