Organisers of the annual VAULT Festival, which has run for over twenty years, have announced that it will not be going ahead in February and March 2024. The much-anticipated decision confirms that in the time available it has not been possible to find a new home, following the loss of their Waterloo Arches site at the end of last season.
Hope for a VAULT Festival 2024 in the autumn
All is not lost, however. A special expanded edition of the work-in-progress festival, A Pinch of VAULT in the usual February and March VAULT Festival period will take place at The Glitch and additional venues in the Waterloo and South Bank area. It will also provide opportunities for larger work-in-progress shows and different types of work.
Meanwhile, the search for a new location goes and there is hope for a VAULT Festival 2024 in the autumn, with applications opening in the early part of that year.
Inevitably, money is still needed to ensure the Festival's survival. The team’s plea is straightforward: “If you’re able to donate, we’d be extremely grateful. Alternatively, you can pick up some cool VAULT Merch, or gather your pals and undertake the first VAULT Quest: A Bridge Through Time. Every penny helps towards our mission to #SaveVAULT”.
