What is Vault Festival 2019?
It's an eight-week fringe festival of some of London's most exciting new and grassroots theatre, cabaret and comedy. Plus a packed line-up of immersive experiences, pop-ups, parties, and bags of underground atmosphere.

When is Vault Festival 2019?
From 23th January until 17th March. 

Where is Vault Festival?
Surprisingly enough, in a vault. Well, kind of... The action takes place in The Vaults Theatre, a sprawling, crypt-like space underneath Waterloo Station, with a couple of extra shows in nearby Network Theatre and Morley College.

How much does Vault Festival cost?
Because it's a fringe fest, prices are most definitely pocket-friendly. Most tickets are £9-£12, which leaves a bit of spare cash for a pint at one of the venue's many bars.
