The Vault may have been unlocked for a brief period, but that does not mean it is going to be easy to find. Once you reach to Waterloo Station, walk to the bottom of Station Road Approach until you come across a set of stairs leading down to an underground labyrinth (also known as Leake Street). This graffiti filled tunnel is the passageway to a six week festival of live entertainment. The Vault Festival.
Already well underway, the festival continues until the 8th March. Discover music, theatre, and comedy to suit all tastes. Events are individually ticketed and cost between £7.50-£25, but on on Tuesdays and Wednesdays you can enjoy free performances.
Based on the novel by Hunter S Thompson, a young journalist discovers the dark side of his career as he searches for the truth about how the American Dream was lost. Audiences are encouraged to get into the spirit of the seventies by going in costume.
An adaptation of a novel by Ian McEwan, The Cement Garden is a coming of age story about four siblings who invent their own isolated world, after their father's death leaves them with a 'large quantity of cement at [their] disposal.'
