If you’ve been down to this year’s VAULT Festival already, you must have spotted the van parked just outside the main entrance in Leake Street – but have you been inside? Take a peak inside and see what audiences are saying about SOUL IN THE VAN – and then get booking for the festival’s most intimate show this year!
A singer, singing soulful songs in the back of a van, to a handful of people, for 15 minutes.
A van loaded with theatre seats, fairy lights, a piano and a guitar. That’s what was needed for this show. And that’s what we’ve got. Phil Grainger (The Great Gatsby, Orpheus, Gobbledigook) is hosting what are surely some of the most intimate gigs ever made. Throughout the eight weeks to the end of the festival, there are special guests joining Phil and guests inside the van. Who? You’ll have to book and queue up to see – but, rest assured, every single day of VAULT 18, someone will be inside to “serenade your socks off”.
There are seven sessions through the evening, lasting 15 minutes each. Got a group of friends? You can book to experience this private soul concert altogether too.
Experience SOUL IN THE VAN, perhaps the most intimate gig you’ll ever attend. Join Phil Grainger outside the main entrance of #VAULT2018 for a short & soulful gig in the comfort of the back of his van, decked out with theatre seats & fairy lights. https://t.co/Y2p5SBS8KO pic.twitter.com/kEJXMr9Xw1

What do audiences say?
“Best time ever in a van”
“I had shivers down my spine for 30 minutes straight”
“Astonishing… beautiful vocals and wonderful ambience. Better than Hamilton…”
“Just makes you want to be happy and in love. Great experience”
“Thank you for curing my fear of the dark”
“You made time stand still, and that to me is the most beautiful thing a person can do”
