What’s On at The Brunel Museum

Underground performances combining art, music and acoustic engineering. In 1843 there were fifty thousand visitors on the first day. Listen to the remarkable acoustic of this extraordinary chamber, once the world’s most popular visitor destination.

St Valentine’s Night
Saturday 11 February 2017

How to deal with the cynical marketing shambles that is Valentine’s Day? Relax, it’s taken care of. Midnight Apothecary opens its broad church doors to the loved up, the hopeful, the curious, the cynical and the doubtful.

Inside the candlelit Engine House, live music of the torchsong variety (with an edge) from the wonderful Nathan Osgood Trio AND..quell your beating heart.. an optional descent into Brunel’s dark, underground love cave. In the magical candle lit garden, toast complimentary marshmallows, or find delicious sizzling fare down on the terrace. And very special seasonal potions that will be fresh and wild, just like you!

The Thames Tunnel Underground Shaft is below ground: the air is cool so please dress warmly.

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’ .
