Following a successful 4-year residency at Tobacco Dock, for its’ Ruby Anniversary year, the BASE Awards adopts one of the most iconic live performance venues in London as its new home with a mission to celebrate the year’s accomplishments in style. Fusing a remarkable heritage with continued cultural relevancy, BASE follows in the footsteps of countless legendary artists and cultural events to take place on the Roundhouse stage.

Speaking about the new venue, BASE Chief Executive, Liz Bales, said: “The BASE Awards are well established as the celebratory high point in the home entertainment calendar and there is no better venue to hero the Awards in their 40th year than the Roundhouse.  The category has seen an astounding evolution over the past 40 years and as the pace of change continues, the boundless energy and devotion shown by individuals and teams across the industry is both inspiring and exciting. We can’t wait to celebrate the outstanding work produced this year with you in June.
