Vault FestivalFollowing the Prime Minister's press conference advising audiences to stay away from theatres and pubs, the Vault Festival closed a week earlier than planned, on 16th March 2020. The boundless Vault Festival is one of the most exciting happenings on London's fringe with one of the largest curated arts programmes in the world. Returning for its eighth year in 2020, the festival offers eight weeks of theatre and comedy, immersive experiences, cabaret, live performances and late-night parties. This year, while the central hub will remain in the underground Vaults, 18 spaces across Waterloo and the South Bank will also be hosting events with the climate crisis at the forefront of the programme. Eco Week in Week 4 will present shows such as Matt Winning's It's the End of the World as We Know It and the carbon-neutral musical adventure How To Save A Rock. Another focal point will be global stories with highlights including Far Gone, inspired by writer John Rwothomach's experiences of nearly being kidnapped by a guerrilla rebel group in Uganda and Santi & Naz, a queer love story set against the backdrop of the partition of India.

About The Vaults

The Vaults under Waterloo are an intriguing venue that play host to a number of underground events. Prime among them is the annual Vault Festival, an eight-week arts festival at the beginning of the year which encompasses 300 or so shows with a wide-ranging programme of fringe theatre, immersive performances, live music, discussions and late night parties.
