To all our Artists, Audiences, Partners and all other participants,

Following the Prime Minister’s press conference advising audiences to stay away from theatres and pubs, Mat and Andy have had to take the decision to not open the Festival’s doors for its final week.

It is with broken hearts that we make this statement, but we know you will understand why. We cannot safely, nor would we want to, encourage people to act against explicit government advice. As of this moment, all future performances and events at VAULT Festival 2020 will not happen.

We are deeply sad. Nonetheless, we are going to work as quickly as possible to let each participant know how this affects them, and we’re going to work as hard as possible to minimise the financial impact upon our artists and staff.

This will take some time. We ask for your patience while we do so, and we ask that you continue to treat each other with kindness, respect and love as we face this unprecedented challenge together.

We will be in touch with more detail, and a full press release & statement, as soon as we can.

Mat & Andy
