Vault FestivalReturning for its third 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 Artful Badger, Filter's Macbeth, True Brits by Vinay Patel set in the aftermath of 7/7, and Yve Blake who collects stories from strangers to turn them into music and dance show 'Lie Collector'. Host to a choice of more than 30 shows (that's at least five shows a night!) in the atmospheric tunnels beneath Waterloo Station (accessed via Leake Street), Vault is one of the most exciting happenings on London's fringe.
