Exclusive Bascule Chamber Concert


Tower Bridge is delighted to announce the first-ever public event to take place inside its atmospheric Bascule Chamber!

As part of this year’s Totally Thames Festival, this cavernous space, hidden below river-level will be brought to life with live music performances taking place at intervals throughout the day on Saturday 26th September 2015 and Sunday 27th September 2015*.

Using recordings of Tower Bridge’s very own lifting mechanisms, internationally renowned composer Iain Chambers, will create a bespoke brass and electronic piece of music for this special event. As road and river traffic rumbles on above their heads, audiences will be enchanted by this never-heard-before piece.

Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to experience live music deep inside the most famous bridge in the world.
