Artistic Director of The Vaults, Kieron Vanstone talks about his time at the venue so far!
You’ve been at the Vaults for nearly 4 years now and have transformed the once disused arches into something of a cultural hub. How does it feel to have supported many artists and to have created such a unique atmosphere?
The Dance Before Christmas is the party to bring out your inner christmas spirit. There’s live music, drink and a lot of dancing. Want to know more? Purchase a ticket and join us on the dance floor…
When it comes to Vault Festival, the programming is completely out of our hands as it’s run by another company. However, we get requests from companies to use our space, if we feel it fits The Vaults then we take it further. Also, if we like a piece/ an artist we approach it/them and try to get them in our space to create.
The audience can expect an underground world with weekly different themes, late nights, early mornings and fantastic fringe theatre.
As we don’t run the festival it’s mostly out of our hands. We’re there mainly, for extra help and to experience the festival.
We are booked up till October due to Alice’s Adventures Underground, Adventures in Wonderland, The Significant Other Festival and different piece’s in our theatre. Big and bold pieces are taking toll in 2017.
