Catch up with great theatre in the Virtual VAULTS Festival 2021

In normal times, the Vaults underneath Waterloo Station would be heaving with a non-stop festival of shows which runs from the end of January into March.

The Festival, a kind of winter EdFest down South, started in 2012 and has grown each year to become London’s largest arts festival.

Until of course, the pandemic forced the 2020 season to conclude early, and the 2021 season to disappear entirely in terms of live events with an audience.

However, the enterprising VAULT producers have come up with a way in which we can still enjoy quality theatre experiences through the ever-evolving technology available to us.

The VAULT VIdeo Club brings you award winning shows and audience favourites from past VAULT festivals, captured by LIVR, right into your own home.

LIVR technology allows you to watch a 360-degree immersive video of your chosen shows from “the best seat in the house”. Use your mouse to look around the stage while you watch. It’s the closest thing you can get to actually being there-without being there!

Each Show Video is available to view for a limited “run” of a Weekend, which, like all weekends (in Lockdown), starts at 7pm on Thursday and ends at 11pm on Sunday.

To get access to a show, you’ll need a ticket, but YOU pick the price – whatever you can afford to pay (minimum £1.00). There is a suggested amount of £10, but whatever you pay goes towards supporting the Artists, VAULT Creative Arts and covering the costs of making VAULT Video Club available.

Once you’ve got your ticket you’ll get an email with instructions on how you can watch the show. If you really like it, you can make top-up donations to increase your contribution.

LIVR Player is cutting-edge technology and certain older browsers won’t support it. To make sure you get access to the full features, please enjoy VAULT Video Club with Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Opera. Safari is not recommended as subtitles are not supported. Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator are not compatible with this technology.

Take a look at what’s available and enjoy some of VAULT’s highlights direct to your own home. You can even join the Watch Party at 7pm each Thursday night and Tweet along, if that’s your thing. Not mine, but there you are. Takes all sorts…
