VAULT Festival Director & Co-Founder Andy George comments,

“We’re thrilled to be celebrating VAULT Festival’s 10th birthday by welcoming back artists and audiences to the festival. The last 21 months have been incredibly hard for everyone in the cultural sector, especially freelancers; we want VAULT Festival 2022 to be a beacon on the horizon that everyone can look forward to and to add colour and vibrancy to the cold winter months that lie ahead. We’re incredibly grateful to all the artists, audiences, partners, and staff who’ve worked with us and supported our mission over the past two years, and the eight that came before it, to mean we can still be here today presenting the brightest and boldest artists & live performance makers of our time.”

For the first time, we’ll be offering an online programme of shows with VAULT Live On Demand providing audiences unable to make it to Waterloo the opportunity to experience the festival from the comfort of home. Selected shows will be streamed in the same week as the live performances. More information coming soon!

2022’s festival will also see the introduction of two ways for audiences to make the most out of their experience. For those attending our legendary late night events, the Party Pass will include free drinks, bar discounts, priority check in and free cloakroom. Also new for 2022, the Festival Pass includes free tickets, free drinks, bar discounts, ticket discounts and a personalised festival pass. Other ways to support the festival and maximise your experience include becoming a Festival Supporter or a Festival Patron. Click here to find out more.

Safety is paramount at the festival, with an improved ventilation system and audiences required to show an NHS Covid Pass to access all venues and bars. The pass can show double vaccination, an LFT taken & uploaded within 48 hours, or having had Covid-19 in the last 6 months. The festival remains cashless, all tickets will be contactless, test and trace will be in place alongside timed entry, and the wearing of face coverings will be recommended throughout. If a show is cancelled due to COVID restrictions, we’ll refund, issue account credit, or exchange tickets according to your preference.

VAULT Festival promises to light up the cold winter nights. Join us for an epic experience, and the very best in new theatre, comedy, late night entertainment, and unmissable live performance. Click here to see What’s On.
