VAULT Festival


VAULT Festival is the UK’s leading independent showcase of live performance and artistic talent; featuring thousands of sensational performances across Theatre, Comedy, & Live Entertainment, made by the most exciting and boldest artists of our time. Set in bespokely created venues across the heart of Waterloo, the festival bursts to life for 8 glorious weeks of joyous creativity; adding vibrance and colour to the otherwise dreary deep winter months. We’re the most accessible, sustainable, affordable, and welcoming performance festival in the UK.

We value art and entertainment equally; creating a safe-space environment where audiences feel welcome, artists feel supported and everyone feels like they belong surrounded by culture created for, and by, them.
