Think of England at The Vaults is an unforgettable experience that transports you back to war-torn London with ease, crafted and performed to perfection – the show of the festival so far.
Think of England at The Vaults is impressive work from Anonymous is a Woman and a highlight of the festival so far for me.

Now I’m no republican, but the problem with a hereditary monarchy is that you never really know who you will get ruling you. They could be good or evil, sensible or mad, a statesman/woman or just a state, it’s all a bit of a lottery.
