Cancelled Vaults Festival shows find a new home at the Barons Court 

January 2022

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.

The newly-formed neurodivergent collective Neurospace Theatre has started a residency at the Barons Court Theatre this December and January.
