The Vault has opened to a slightly younger clientele this weekend with the kick off the the Mini Vault Festival.
Tucked away in the caves beneath Waterloo Station, is the eclectic and quirky event space, The Vault. Access is via a Graffiti tunnel, this space usually hosts off the wall theatre productions and club nights and this weekend is no different.
The main room, at the back of the tunnel has high arched ceilings with bright bunting strung from side to side. In the middle of the room was a huge table, scattered with paper for arts and crafts. To the left was face painting and on the other side was a cardboard box building area. The room was heaving with families, making things and playing together. A children’s comedy show was taking place on the stage at the back.
We had booked tickets for the show Albee Vector the Sound Collector which started at 12.45pm. The show was well produced, and though the story line was quite involved, the many sounds and great actors kept even the little ones entertained.
The Mini Vault Festival continues on 21st-22nd Feb and 7th-8th March and is set to host a fantastic programme of events. While entrance to the festival is free, some activities and shows require booking. The full programme of events is available here.
