Concerts, Shows, Theatre

Looking for  information on concerts, shows and theatre events at the Brunel Museum? The calendar is quieter than usual because of our major development improving access into the Thames Tunnel Shaft and creating a new gallery and performance space (read more about our plans here). Work onsite is well under way, and the chamber will open again in the New Year.

In the meantime, the Midnight Apothecary will run once a month events through the Winter, our guided walks and boat trips happen every day, along with cafe gallery exhibitions and community events.

Keep up to date with the progress of the plans on the blog and join the event mailing list by emailing

The Thames Tunnel Shaft

The Thames Tunnel Shaft is a huge underground chamber, half the size of Shakespeare’s Globe, directly above the railway. Before the trains came, the shaft echoed with applause for acrobats, tightrope walkers and serenaders performing in the tunnel. Now the shaft is a unique and stunning concert venue. Time Out listed the shaft as one of ‘London’s magical music venues’ and Radio 4 described it as an ‘underground cathedral’ .

The Brunel Museum

In the autumn and winter months concerts take place in the intimate setting of the museum itself. The museum has a wonderful acoustic, a lovely Bechstein grand piano and a welcoming bar!
