VAULT Creative Arts are creators of extraordinary cultural events & unique creative opportunities for new & established artists throughout the UK and internationally. We exist to inspire people to fill their lives with creativity, and to use the arts as a catalyst for positive change.

Our flagship event is the critically-acclaimed VAULT Festival, the UK’s leading independent showcase of live performance and artistic talent; featuring thousands of sensational performances across Theatre, Comedy, & Live Entertainment, made by the most exciting and boldest artists of our time. Set in bespoke venues across the heart of Waterloo, VAULT Festival bursts to life for eight glorious weeks of joyous creativity; adding vibrance and colour to the otherwise dreary deep winter months.

We are also creators of The Glitch, a vibrant, artsy café, bar & creative space in the heart of Waterloo. Through our work, we aim to make the world we live and work in more accessible, more sustainable, more inclusive, and more creative for everyone.
