Join us in the atmospheric Victoria Tunnel for a completely unique musical experience with an eclectic 'sounds of the underground' music programme.

Saturday 16 March Maja Bugge will perform a one-hour solo cello concert responding to the venue of the Victoria Tunnel. Maja Bugge is a Norwegian cellist, composer and improviser based in Lancaster whose work has been featuring at Manchester jazz festival, BAC in London and Lancaster jazz festival. Previous site specific performances have included a cave, a library and a heritage centre as well as jazz festivals where audiences have been transported by the magical atmosphere she creates. (“imaginative vitality.” The Wire  “captivating to observe Bugge improvising with her surroundings.” The New York city Jazz Record). Find out more at and here is a digital link to her new solo album No Exit, recorded in a canal tunnel in 2017.  *Additional performance added at 9.15pm due to high demand*.

Friday 22 March Pit Pony Having quickly gained acclaim following performances including slots at the North East’s Evolution Emerging, Narc and Brave Exhibition Festivals, Pit Pony bring their gut-punching yet melodic sound to the underground. To celebrate the launch of their new single ‘Osaka’ released the same day, the band bring a one-off audio visual performance to the Victoria Tunnel. Support will also be provided by some very special guests. (“A hugely enjoyable garage-pop racket. Wonderfully Abrasive. Bring on the ringing” – Narc Magazine) This will be in two 45 minute sets starting at 7pm, with a half hour interval.

Friday 5 April  Atmospherica Underground - beautiful solo piano music from award winning composer and pianist Steve Luck performed in (almost) pitch darkness. Early booking is advised. Two separate 45-minute piano concerts at 7.15pm and 8.30pm- tickets are available here

Guests should dress warmly and meet at the Tunnel Entrance on Ouse Street, behind the Hotel du Vin, just before the start time. Chairs will be provided. No food or drink is permitted in the Tunnel.  It would be better not to bring a bag if possible (and we have been advised that we should conduct random bag searches at these events)
