The Brunel Museum proudly presents music, poetry and sound sculpture in a secret underground chamber. Invisible People with surprising stories, a love story in the time of revolution, a choir and a grand piano fifty feet below ground.

Isambard Brunel dans son Cabaret is a week of underground performances combining artists, musicians and acoustic engineers. In 1843 there were fifty thousand visitors on the first day. To stand in the remarkable acoustic of this extraordinary chamber is to understand why they called it the world’s most popular visitor destination.
