VAULT Festival returns to London's Waterloo with more than 600 events to mark its 10th anniversary.
Running from 25 January 20 March, the programme includes works in progress and pieces created as part of mentoring programme for early and mid-career performers the VAULT Five, as well as theatre, storytelling, poetry, music, clowning, stand-up and Lates cabaret and Burlesque for night owls.
Running alongside the live performances is an online programme, VAULT Live On Demand.
Also new this year is the Festival Pass offering free and discounted tickets and drinks and the Party Pass which will include bar offers, priority check-in and a free cloakroom. A range of offers also exist for VAULT Festival Supporters and Festival Patrons.
All visitors will be asked to show an NHS COVID Pass. Other COVID precautions include an improved ventilation system, test and trace, timed entry, contactless tickets and payments and recommended mask wearing. Refunds, credit and tickets can be claimed if a show is cancelled due to COVID restrictions.
VAULT Festival director and co-founder Andy George said, "we’re thrilled to be celebrating VAULT Festival’s 10th birthday by welcoming back artists and audiences to the festival.
"The last 21 months have been incredibly hard for everyone in the cultural sector, especially freelancers; we want VAULT Festival 2022 to be a beacon on the horizon that everyone can look forward to and to add colour and vibrancy to the cold winter months that lie ahead.
"We're incredibly grateful to all the artists, audiences, partners, and staff who've worked with us and supported our mission over the past two years, and the eight that came before it, to mean we can still be here today presenting the brightest and boldest artists & live performance makers of our time."
Tickets are now on sale but check out the VAULT web site for the full programme which will be announced on 23 November.
