Following last year’s sell out concert series in the Bascule Chamber at Tower Bridge, composer Iain Chambers returns to fill the atmospheric subterranean Victorian space with a new programme.

London's greatest hidden space for an intimate vocal concert. The bascule chamber houses Tower Bridge's huge counterweights during lifting. When the bridge is at rest, this huge brick-lined space stands empty: a dramatic subterranean Victorian space. The chamber's unique acoustic is showcased here by specially-commissioned new works for voice, curated by Iain Chambers and performed by the award-winning Juice Vocal Ensemble and Ben See Group. Featuring classic and contemporary music, an unmissable and atmospheric concert providing a unique way to experience a great feat of Victorian engineering.

"Chamber music of a new kind under bridge." The Times 

“He makes sweet music out of shrieking lorries, screaming drills and even leaf-blowers. Now composer Iain Chambers is using the sound of Tower Bridge in a new work performed below the Thames in its cavernous Bascule Chambers” Guardian
