VAULT Festival will return to London from 28 January to 22 March 2020 for its eighth consecutive outing.

The festival will offer eight weeks of the best new theatre, comedy, immersive experiences, cabaret, live performance and late-night parties.

The 2020 version spreads out across 18 spaces around Waterloo and the South Bank with the central hub at The Vaults on Leake Street.

The Cockatiel at Hello Darling is a new intimate comedy venue, and The Festival will also return to The Network Theatre and Vaulty Towers as well as hosting pop-ups in the local area.

The Gift Horse Stage at The Horse & Stables pub will see half its profits support's Team Mum Campaign, helping to fund pregnancy services in rural Kenya that offer health information and medical support for new mothers.

VAULT Festival directors and producers Mat Burt and Andy George commented ...

"This year's festival is bigger and bolder than ever before.

There is a real sense of crisis and hunger for change from the artists we're working with.

We still believe in the collective impact this festival can have on the industry, our artists, and our audiences.

Over the years VAULT Festival has showcased some of the very best shows from both established and emerging artists, and at the same time has become a hotbed for brand new audience experiences that shatter the status-quo.

It's vitally important to us that VAULT Festival is providing a platform for underrepresented voices and stories to be heard."

The VAULT Festival 2020 programme will expand what live performance can be and who it belongs to - and everyone is welcome.

The Festival intends taking the temperature of what the best artists in the UK believe work should be discussing and reflect the most urgent conversations happening.

This year's programme will offer some of the most radical and exciting new work from the most promising new and experienced artists and companies.

The first round of shows are now on sale and each week to come there will be more shows released with the final complete programme expected on 3 December.
