Illumini 2010: Secret Subterranean LondonThe basement at Shoreditch Town Hall is hosting a week-long celebration of London's underground vaults and tunnels. Secret Subterranean London, which is part of Illumini 2010, presents a historical and exciting look at what lies beneath the paving stones of our capital city. With the help of more than 50 artists, the exhibition re-creates many of London's underground sites - such as World War bunkers, disused tube stations, crypts and historical waterways - in the suitably labyrinthine setting of the Shoreditch Town Hall basement. On Thursday 9th September a grand opening night - 6pm-10pm and free of charge, like the whole exhibition - will include a range of live acts, such as stilt walkers, light shows, magicians, illuminating dancers, tarot readings and historical costumed performers. Illumini, which sounds a bit like a Dan Brown-style cult, is a not-for-profit organisation which specialises in putting on shows featuring light, visual artists and performers. During the course of this event there will be the chance to hear a number of talks and go on a range of tours to certain secret, long-forgotten underground destinations, including the grand entrance of Brunel's Thames Tunnel and Shoreditch Church Crypt. For more information, check the official Illumini website.

 

About Shoreditch Town Hall

Site of the legendary Whirly Gig parties in the nineties, Shoreditch Town Hall lends itself well to any type of gathering. Re-opened in 2005, following a £2.3m programme of refurbishment, the place has been smartened up since the rave days. There are grand public rooms for 600 people and smaller meeting rooms for as few as six and all are available for hire. More about Shoreditch Town Hall
