Bellini's I Capuleti e i Montecchi 2016

The Brunel Museum Thames Tunnel Shaft, London

We are delighted to return once again to the, recently refurbished, Brunel Museum Thames Tunnel Shaft. The extended capacity will be very helpful, having sold out here on previous years - we still highly recommend booking in advanced to ensure you don't miss out on this unique experience. This venue will create an intensely immersive atmosphere for this beautiful production.

Complete your evening by with delicious cocktails and toasted marshmallows round the fire afterwards in the beautiful Midnight Apothecary Cocktail Garden, located on site.

Please note that the temperature in the tunnel shaft may be cool, so bring some warm clothes. Access to lower shaft by stairs only. Wheelchair access via garden ramp to a viewing platform high up in the shaft. Please contact us should you have any queries about this.

Tickets are £20, or £27 to include a cocktail from the Apothecary Cocktail Garden

Venue Information

Venue Description:

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 leads 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 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.
