And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…

Revolution | Vault Festival | 24 Jan-18 Mar
Right, in honour of the Vault Festival being so darned brilliant, I have decreed that today we shall spend the whole day there. Well, all the tips will be for shows on there. You are of course welcome to just see one, then go home. Anyway, here’s the first one, this excellent interactive and immersive piece is set in London, where three rival factions fight for control of a post-revolution capital. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Head this way for more.

One Duck Down | Vault Festival | 3-18 Feb
“Our unlikely but lovable hero Billy, is prepared to venture to the ends of the earth to win the affections of his sweetheart. Little did he know he’d be set the tremendous task of finding the elusive nautical treasure… Rubber Ducks?!” Hurrah, one for all the family, inspired by the true story of when 7000 Rubber Ducks got cast adrift in a storm, featuring music, clowning and puppetry. See this page here for details.

Becoming Shades | Vault Festival | 24 Jan-18 Mar (pictured)
If you’ve been to shows at the Vault Festival before, you may well have seen this already, because it was on back in 2016. The fact that it’s returning is testament to its quality, and I expect if you have seen it before, you might be up for seeing it again. If you haven’t, now is your chance to take in this dark and immersive circus piece re-imagining Persephone’s presumed seduction by Hades. Head this way for info and to book tickets.
