The huge empty bascule chamber underneath Tower Bridge is the setting for a video projection & sound installation inspired by the Blitz photography of Arthur Cross & Fred Tibbs.
During the Blitz, when the Square Mile was decimated by high explosive and incendiary bombs, two City of London Police Officers rushed out into the aftermath to photograph the damage.
Inspired by the photography of Arthur Cross and Fred Tibbs, a new immersive video projection and sound installation will transform Tower Bridge’s Bascule Chamber offering a dramatised narrative that explores the characters, the landscape and the impact of the Blitz across the City, at Tower Bridge and beyond.
Guildhall School, the City of London Police Museum, London Metropolitan Archives and Tower Bridge have worked together to create the story and give a thoughtful and poignant insight into the life of a police officer, during one of London’s most dramatic historic periods.
Note that this event features steep stairs, spiral staircases and areas that are considered confined spaces.
