Vault FestivalThe boundless Vault Festival is one of the most exciting happenings on London's fringe. Returning for its seventh year, the eight-week arts festival boasts its biggest and boldest programme to date in 2019 with more than 400 shows on the line-up. The wide-ranging festival covers performance, live music, discussions and one-off late-night parties and this year will be more diverse than ever with 53% of the pieces being female-led and a quarter of work coming from LGBTQIA+ artists. The headline act for 2019 is Counting Sheep, an award-winning Ukrainian folk opera, while other theatre highlights include Tilda Swinton Answers an Ad on Craigslist, Boys and Katie & Pip. There will also be comedy from James Acaster, Phil Wang and Helen Bauer along with drag act King for a Night and Valentine's special Eat Your Heart Out! from Shotgun Carousel.
