Concerts, Shows, Theatre
Looking for information on concerts, shows and theatre events at the Brunel Museum? The calendar is quieter than usual because we are starting a major development to improve access into the Thames Tunnel Shaft and create a new gallery and performance space (read more about our plans here). Work offsite is well under way, and the chamber will open again in the New Year.
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’ .
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!
