I’ve never been to The Vaults before, a performance venue tucked underneath Waterloo station. The area is synonymous with graffiti art where people can express themselves freely. There are discarded spray cans as I walk through, so not the most salubrious of approaches. However, whilst it is still early evening (before six), I can already see a queue of people and a vibe of expectation fills the air. This is a space which has several rooms off the main tunnel mixed with bars, it’s dark and dingy, but you get a feel for something real and exciting is surrounding you? That something special is creativity and it’s everywhere here as part of The Vaults Festival.
