Why Under the Bridge?

Due to the excellence of the venue, staff, equipment and level of service, Under the Bridge has been the preferred hosts for two years, hosting many BIMM masterclasses and student performances.
By use the venue within the curriculum, BIMM and Under the Bridge provide students with one of the best stages and sound systems in Europe. BIMM’s courses are designed around authentic experiences, in teaching, learning and assessment, and Under the Bridge provides an excellent example of this.
BIMM Institute London commented: “The student experience is of the highest quality thanks to the level of support Under the Bridge provide through their venue management, sound crew, state-of-the-art equipment and warm welcome.
“Our students and staff consider it a privilege to have access to one of Europe’s leading venues, and the impact it makes on student learning is immeasurable.”
