This July, Strike A Light and Gloucester Guildhall are partnering with the Roundhouse, Gloucester Culture Trust and The Music Works to transform the rooftops of King's Walk multi-storey and Eastgate Centre carparks into a summer festival of theatre, music and performance. 

Together we've joined forces with artists across the country to bring the perfect collision of classical music, hip hop, R'n'B, pop, rap, rock and spoken word to Gloucester.

Combined with a rooftop bar, we welcome you to park up and while away your long summer evenings with us.

The Gloucester Rooftop marks the first collaboration with the Roundhouse for the Gloucester-Roundhouse Exchange.
