Vault FestivalThe boundless Vault Festival is one of the most exciting happenings on London's fringe. Returning for its sixth year, the eight-week arts festival expands to include 300 new shows with a wide-ranging programme of performance, live music, discussions and one-off late night parties. Held at The Vaults in Waterloo's Leake Street tunnels, the line-up for this year's festival includes Neverland, by Theatre Deli and The Guild of Misrule, producers of the 2017's The Great Gatsby. There's immersive hip hop dance with Caravan while Lamplighters leads the audience through an improvised spy story in the style of John Le Carre. Chivaree Circus bring their award winning re-imagining of the classic myth of Persephone into a full 8 week immersive circus extravaganza and comedy comes via Edinburgh from Mat Ewins, Graham Dickson and Joe Sutherland. For the first time, the festival spills into Waterloo East Theatre and the Network Theatre plus The Caravan Theatre returns, bringing new short plays to audiences of up to nine in a caravan parked on Leake Street, and there's a dedicated comedy festival featuring stand-up from Joe Lycet, Bridget Christie, Richard Gadd, Mat Ewins and Phil Wang.
