“London’s answer to Edinburgh’s Fringe” Time Out “In these dree and dreary days of January, London needs something to cheer itself up and the answer might very well be VAULT Festival.” London Evening Standard “Extravaganza of theatre, comedy, club nights, workshops, and more” The Independent On Sunday
“For more uplift in the dark days before spring, get yourself down to VAULT Festival for its wild and whirling programme” Londonist “Labyrinthine underworld, boasting a throng of performers and shows” Evening Standard Magazine “Something for everyone” The Guardian “You should be there.” Shortlist
From January 25th to March 5th, hundreds of new shows exploded across a Festival of Festivals in our Waterloo home. With new venues, new bars, new food and plenty of surprises, VAULT 2017’s limit was beyond the skies and into the stars.
VAULT Festival took its final bow of 2017 on 5th March as we closed six weeks of theatre, comedy and live entertainment. Final audiences totalled 47,000 across nearly 250 shows. Lots of companies leave VAULT with five star reviews and embark on tours, residencies and more. A huge thank you to everyone who came down to support these courageous, talented artists.
