A fest in the vaults
The Hidden Door Festival breathes new life into the old town, with a pop-up arts festival featuring music, cinema and much more.

Hidden Door Festival -

Hidden Door Festival is a cacophony of all things good and right in the world of media and the arts. Music will be provided by local and not so local artists who range from indie, rock, to dubstep, and dance music. Gravious are my favourite of the line up, their sound distinctly modern and mixed with a little electronic classics, dance and dubstep.

Programmes of the days events can be found on the website. They're broken down between 1-5 days, and 6-9 days. What pulled me the most is the programme for the last three days.

On the third of April (Thursday), Hidden Door opens its doors to Play Poland Film Festival held in Vault 17. From 3pm onwards you will be able to part take in, and enjoy the Film Festival, which is the largest mobile film event in Britain, Norway and Canada, aiming at presenting and promoting contemporary Polish cinema.

This is a more than established festival, whereby visitors will get to know the work of one of the most celebrated animators in the world, Tomasz Bagiński.

Hidden Door certainly has something for everyone; one of the contemporary dance performances by Tara Hodgson really caught my eye. At 6.30pm you can watch Tara perform Bone Garden which "tells the story of a woman who is reflecting on her past as she reveals to the audience the contents of her trunk, which is a metaphor for her journey through life." - Hidden Door

Although I now live down South I'm planning a trip up North to hang around disused vaults. Now I never thought I'd say that.
