North London venue the Roundhouse has announced new trustees from tech companies including Meta, Google and Apple-owned Platoon are set to join its board.

The incoming trustees at the 3,500-cap venue include Meta director of policy programs (Africa, Middle East and Turkey) Sherry Dzinoreva; Google public affairs advisor Rosie Luff, creative art and socio-economic growth strategist Kojo Marfo, Platoon’s Leo Wyndham and Skilled Education CEO Rajay Naik.

Since the Roundhouse was converted from a steam train turning facility to a concert venue more than half a century ago, the building has not only seen performances by many icons of popular music including The Clash, The Ramones, Jimi Hendrix and The Doors, it has also provided an important springboard for entertainment industry newcomers.

The Roundhouse works with 7,500 young people each year through a youth programme that sees 11-30 year-olds take part in creative opportunities or use affordable studio space.

Roundhouse chair Simon Turner said; “I’m delighted to welcome a raft of talented new trustees to the Roundhouse Board. I have no doubt that they will bring the skills, experience and creativity that will help drive forward the Roundhouse’s mission to raise the UK’s creative potential.”

Sherry Dzinoreva; “I’m incredibly excited to join as one of the Roundhouse’s newest trustees.  What an honour to be a part of such an iconic organisation that has impacted the lives of so many young people over the years.  It’s an exciting time to join and I look forward to working with my fellow trustees in helping to build the future of the organisation.”
