Vault FestivalReturning for its fourth year, Vault Festival is a six-week arts festival in Waterloo's Leake Street tunnels featuring a wide-ranging programme of performance, live music, discussions and one-off late night parties. The line up for this year's festival includes Squidboy, starring award-winning physical theatre performer Trygve Wakenshaw; festival debut The Various Lives of Infinite Nullity by award-winning company Clout Theatre; and the Diantines Ball from the 'Queen of Canvey' Diane Chorley. The series of Vault Lates include late night parties such as Artful Badger's Valentine's Ball, Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras and FILTHy Silent Disco. Families are also catered for with the biggest Mini Vault programme to date, featuring the Pirates of the Carabina, poet Roger McGough and Lithuanian dance company Puzzle. Bars in the festival are open every night as well as pop-up country pub Suffolk Punch and there are one-off events - both ticketed and free - in the atmospheric tunnels beneath Waterloo Station (accessed via Leake Street). Vault is one of the most exciting happenings on London's fringe. And, offering something for the kids, there's also Mini Vault on throughout half term.
