You will be among a select group of people who will experience an exciting event in the attic of St Thomas' Church in London Bridge: a secret concert in the oldest operating theatre in Europe. After climbing the 18th century spiral staircase into the bell tower, you will be greeted at the shop and lead into our wonderful Herb Garret. On arrival you will have access to our donation bar as you take a look around the museum. When the time is right you will receive a short introduction to the history of the Old Operating Theatre Museum & Herb Garret and the grisly world of Victorian surgery before the advent of anaesthesia and antiseptics. Then you will be welcomed to enter the old operating theatre itself, a space that once only knew pain, loss, and hope and on this one night it will know the joy of music. It will be a memorable night. After the concert is over, you will be able to linger to take a last look at the museum and our amazing gift shop. Hopefully, you will leave feeling the exhilaration of having discovered several secret gems!

On the 18th of December, 2018, our guest artist will be extraordinary Theo & Vimala. 

This show sees two of the most exciting jazz singers in the UK join forces for one extraordinary evening. Between them Vimala and Theo have performed at internationally recognised venues ranging from The Kennedy Center (USA) to Sadlers Wells, The Royal Albert Hall, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, and many, many more.
 
Tonight they will be bringing the best out of each other with their contrasting styles in this intimate setting.
