Vault Festival 2022 celebrates 10-year anniversary across Waterloo

A festival featuring more than 600 events including comedy, theatre and cabaret is celebrating its 10-year anniversary.

Vault Festival will take place in venues across Waterloo from January 25 to March 20 next year.

Highlights include two-person play Please Do Not Touch by Birmingham poet laureate Casey Bailey and The Silver Bell from Irish writer Alan Flanagan, which explores grief and the desperation we feel to get back the ones we love, even if we really know that that’s not possible.

Mr Bailey’s play looks at the irony and hypocrisy of Please Do Not Touch signs in stately homes and museums, when the items they protect should not be there at all as they belong to other countries and cultures.

Comedians that will appear at the festival include Thaniya Moore, Elf Lyons and Christian Brighty.

Festival director and co-founder Andy George said: “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.”

Tickets are now on sale for the first shows in the 2022 festival’s programme, and the full line-up will be revealed on November 23.
