VAULT, London’s biggest arts festival, gets under way next week, running for eight weeks from 24 January to 18 March 2018 in its original venue beneath Waterloo Station as well as at satellites Waterloo East and Network Theatres. Now in its sixth year, VAULT Festival this year boasts over 300 (!) shows from new writing to immersive theatre, dance, comedy, talks and more.

With so much to choose from, we know it can seem almost impossible to decide what to see! The Mates are pleased to be working with several festival shows this year – and we’re happy to recommend them. Scroll down for our week-by-week guide to Mates’ shows – and watch out for more content and social media on each using the hashtag #MTMVaults.

Be sure to also bookmark this page as we add more shows for the festival’s later weeks. (If you’re taking part in the festival, and would like to feature on MyTheatreMates, please get in touch!)

Our mates at VAULT Festival

Week 1: 24-28 January 2018
Soul in the Van
Soul in the Van
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) hosts what are surely some of the most intimate gigs ever made.
Monster | VAULT Festival 2018
Monster
A thrilling new play where multiple masculinities collide: “This is a story about a girl. And a boy. Some of it’s true. And some of it isn’t. And I’m not going to tell you which is which.”
Labels | VAULT Festival 2018
Labels

This multi-award winning show is a funny, moving and honest story about mixed heritage and immigration.
