Concerts take place in our two wonderful performance spaces – the museum itself and the Thames Tunnel Shaft
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’ .
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!
The Nocturne Notes Two Piano Jazz and Blues Evening in the Brunel Museum: Wednesday 3 December 2014, 7.30pm

Nocturne Notes pianists Jenny and John (a volunteer at the Museum) will play a fabulous programme of music written for two pianos. The beautiful Bechstein piano in the museum will be complimented by a second Bechstein for this special occasion.
The varied programme with a strong jazz and blues theme will feature music by Dave Brubeck, George Gershwin, Richard Rodney Bennett, Hoagy Carmichael and others.
