Vault Festival in London: what to see

Go underground to discover London's boldest, fiercest and weirdest new theatre and comedy at the 2020 edition of Vault Festival

By Alice Saville

Vault Festival will be back in London in 2020 with another brilliantly eclectic eight-week programme of performance, lasting from 28th January until 22nd March. The action takes place in The Vaults Theatre, a sprawling, crypt-like space underneath Waterloo Station, with a couple of extra shows in nearby venues like Network Theatre and Morley College. Because it's a fringe fest, prices are most definitely pocket-friendly. Most tickets are £9-£16, which leaves a bit of spare cash for a pint at one of the venue's many bars. Here is our guide to the fest's best theatre, comedy, and events.
