Venue Information

Thames Tunnel Shaft, Brunel Museum

Part of the fascinating Brunel Museum in Rotherhithe, this place is like an extraordinary underground cathedral. The performance area is an incredible cylindrical shaft built by Brunel as pedestrian entrance to the Thames Tunnel. This is a unique and atmospheric show. New improved access by ramp and full height doorway gives to a staircase down to the lower chamber. A viewing platform high inside the shaft offers balcony seating for a limited number of people: priority given to those with impaired mobility or using a wheelchair. Serving delicious cocktails before the performance and during the interval in the museum’s Midnight Apothecary Garden. Not to be missed! Please note, this venue is underground and the temperature may be cool, so bring a sweater.
