Community Groups

Highbury Roundhouse hosts a variety of community activities run by third parties.

 

Here you can find a range of dance, drama and music groups for children and young people, including weekly Karate classes, Pilates, and music classes for all ages.

 

Please see below the services that our partners run.

Hungarian Family Group

We have 13 working groups in total, providing playgroups, nursery sessions and classes for children and adults at different levels.

 

Most of these classes teach Hungarian as a minority language for pupils who are settled in this country but wish to maintain their Hungarian heritage or give opportunities to non-Hungarian members to develop an understanding of the Hungarian language and culture.

 

Other classes complement mainstream education by teaching children music, dance and drama.

 

We also organise social events at different venues: a Spring Festival with fancy dress in February, a concert or theatre workshop in June, a Sports Day in September, and a Christmas party in December.

Jui-Jitsu

Jitsu is a martial art based on the traditional styles of Jiu-Jitsu that originated and developed in medieval Japan.

 

The core of the art comprises a system of throws, joint locks and strikes. Based on the principle of using an aggressor's energy to their disadvantage.  Men, women and children can use Jitsu skills to counter aggressive situations ranging from unwanted harassment to armed physical assault.

UNDER THE NEW SYSTEM, A VOUCHER CAN ONLY BE REDEEMED WITH AN APPOINTMENT.

In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation, we work with local agencies. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you a foodbank voucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis. Agencies we work with include Islington Council, local housing associations and Help on Your Doorstep.
