Cancelled Vaults Festival shows find a new home at the Barons Court
Like so many, we were saddened to hear of the cancellation of the Vaults Festival. While covid might have prevented the Festival from happening this year, we know it'll be back next year even stronger.
This month we've had a number of conversations with shows to see if we can fit them here at the BC.
We have one joining us this month, On the Line from Odd Eyes Theatre. Originally for live performance, the company has decided to create a digital showing instead. We're excited to welcome them and other Vaults shows in the coming months.

New resident company at the Barons Court
1 December 2021
The newly-formed neurodivergent collective Neurospace Theatre has started a residency at the Barons Court Theatre this December and January.
Building on the well-received work of the Stealth Aspies theatre company (2017-2019) and moving on from references to Hans Asperger, The NeuroSpace Collective are developing a showcase of new work created entirely by neurodivergent artists.
More information to come as things develop.
We wish you and your loved ones a very merry festive season.
We will be taking a break until 7 January 2022 and the theatre will be shut during this time. If you'd like to reach us during this period, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to everyone who visited us, worked with us, and supported us this year. We are cooking up lots of exciting things for 2022 and look forward to welcoming you to the Barons Court again.
