For this 'Brunelian Soirée' as part of Museums at Night, the Rotherhithe & Bermondsey Choral Society serenade visitors to the museum, the site of the Thames Tunnel, where Isambard Kingdom Brunel began his extraordinary career some 170 years ago. The programme reflects Brunel's passion for music and includes ‘See the Conqu’ring Hero Comes’ by Handel, first played here at Brunel’s underwater concert party held in the Thames Tunnel during its construction in the 1820s. Those attending should dress warmly and be aware that access involves bending through a low, short tunnel and descending a solid scaffold staircase – but that's part of the fun!
