SEP-2006 opening of Shunt Lounge.


The Shunt is an art project, 10 artists creating "performance events in unexpected, abandoned or derelict buildings throughout London". The place we are listing here is a strange labyrinth of cellars below London Bridge Station. This structure was obviously a part of the construction of the train station. The cellars were used as wine cellars for a century, but for some years it is used by the artistic collective, which also manages an underground café or bar called the Shunt Lounge in the vaults. There are late-night performances and events in the lounge and art exhibitions and installations in the rest of the vaults.
