The Vaults Theatre is London's underground theatre for the bold, the fresh and the fearless. Our mission is to collaborate and conspire, embracing artists from all walks of life to come together and inspire others. The Vaults Theatre is home to London's unconventional theatre scene.

We have 176 seats and is situated in an abandoned space, in an archway beneath Waterloo station. We focus on programming completely unique theatrical styles, subjects and stories that complement our unusal underground location. We seek out theatre companies that push the boundaries, are brave, exciting and challenging, as well as producing our own work. We are unparalleled, we are unexpected and we are under your feet.

The Vaults Theatre is part of The Vaults - a multidsiciplinary arts space buried deep in the tunnels underneath Waterloo station.


The Vaults is a multidiscipline arts platform that hosts events of every type and nature. Situated in beautiful abandoned brickwork tunnels deep beneath Waterloo station. We are here to feed your curiosity and open your mind. Let The Vaults' maze of underground tunnels swallow you whole.
