Christmas parties with a difference!

Various dates throughout December

Tired of the usual Christmas party packages? Time for something a little different! Following last year's sell-out Christmas Knees Ups down our very own Victorian underground tunnel shaft, Midnight Apothecary is THRILLED to welcome back Tom Carradine the 'Musical Hall and Cabaret artist aficionado' for a night of raucous singalong.  

Warm your cockles above ground around the campfire in our festively lit enchanted secret garden.  Get your blood pumping and your festive singing voices warmed up with our deluxe hot rum toddies.  Descend underground down the brand new grand staircase into Brunel's candle-lit underground Grand Entrance Hall, described as one of the most exciting new performance spaces and cultural attractions today.

Brunel Museum

We're delighted to be hosted by Rotherhithe's famous Brunel Museum. Our cocktail garden is built on the rooftop of the Grand Entrance Hall to Brunel's engineering masterpiece, the Thames Tunnel- the first tunnel under a navigable river anywhere in the world. The tunnel itself is still in use today for the London Overground. However the grade-II listed Grand Entrance Hall is a spectacular sight to behold, and we are proud to offer a free guided descent into this feat of engineering with every visit to the Midnight Apothecary. 

Brunel organised the world’s first underground concert party here in 1827 and we are thrilled to continue his tradition with our Christmas parties being held 'Down the Shaft'!
