About the The Vaults

The Vaults is London's home for immersive theatre and alternative arts.

Its mission is to collaborate and conspire, embracing artists from all walks of life to come together and inspire others.

Set in a maze of disused railway arches under Waterloo station in London, it encourages those that have a natural affinity to the unusual, the daring and the unknown.

It wants talented artists from every vocation to mutate their art; to make stuff that is challenging, accessible and imaginative.*


It also seeks to prove that sustainability promotes a business, not stifles it, and is always trying to green-up its act. *


Note: during Vault Festival, additinal auditoria are used.

For the 2019 festival these are: Unit 9, Granby Place, Pit, Cavern, Cage, Brick Hall, Crescent, Studio, The Forge, The Punch, All LATES.
