Newcastle's Victoria Tunnel unusual venue for orchestra

A piece of music is being performed in an unusual venue beneath Newcastle - a Victorian Tunnel.

Running for 2.5 miles (3.6km), the Victoria Tunnel is one of the city's "hidden relics".

Opened in April 1842, it was used to transport coal from Leazes Main Colliery near the Town Moor down to the River Tyne.

Now it is playing host to a piece of music 'From Mine to Tyne', as part of a series of events being performed in underground venues in the North East.
