I Have A Bad Feeling About This at Vaults Festival

I Have A Bad Feeling About This House of Blakewell, Vaults Festival 21 – 25 February 2018 Book Now For those of us who are HOB virgins, the prospect of finally being able to discover the ins and outs of this fringe cult is a pleasant one indeed, and this year the Vaults Fest regulars return with a new show, new songs, new material, reaching out to new audiences as well as keeping their growing fan base happy.  Announced as a ‘cabaret musical’, and festooned with wreaths of laurels gathered from previous productions, Harry Blake and Alice Keedwell’s latest offering opens on 21st February and is sure to prove a popular draw.  The pair took some time out from rehearsals – and life – to speak to me about it.

Casting Announced For Summer Nights In Space

Book tickets for Summer Nights In Space at the Vault Festival

One of the most keenly anticipated events of this year’s gathering in the cavernous spaces beneath the tracks of Waterloo Station is this sci-fi space rock musical by the hugely original and talented Henry Carpenter.  Developed through the good offices of Hannah Elsy Productions, we have seen this brilliant new creation grow from a 3-song skit at Elsy’s Rich Mix ‘Lowdown’ event, via a workshop presentation at the Young Vic, into this fully developed 70 minute entertainment now about to play six performances in the Brick Hall.
