If you missed it this year, be ready for The Vaults 2018. It's vibrant and packed with progressive, experimental, vibrant programmes that changes your life and the way you look at things.

The festival is also a great way to let loose, let rip and party. The opening and closing parties are fantastic. It's a great spot and events to meet fellow Londoners who are into arts, great music and great theatre. The closing party was packed with dapper, stylish and arty part animals and the vibe was fantastic!

I wish I could attend more shows and I am looking forward to 2018!
