The Vaults is London’s home for immersive theatre and alternative arts. Our mission is to collaborate and conspire, embracing artists from all walks of life to come together and inspire others.
Set in a maze of disused railway arches under Waterloo station in London, we encourage those that have a natural affinity to the unusual, the daring and the unknown. We want talented artists from every vocation to mutate their art; to make stuff that is challenging, accessible and imaginative. We are unparalleled, we are unexpected and we are under your feet.
The Leake Street graffiti tunnel, founded by Banksy, is a public space where you can view the ever-changing work at any time. To visit our other tunnels, book a ticket via our What's On page.
We seek to prove that sustainability promotes a business, not stifles it, and are always trying to green-up our act. See what we're doing HERE
We are here to feed your curiosity and open your mind. Let The Vaults’ maze of underground tunnels swallow you whole.
The Vaults receives external productions, as well as co-producing work and creating our own shows in-house. Please get in touch if you'd like to collaborate!
