London festival claims record audiences

London’s Vault festival has claimed its most successful year yet, after selling more than 70,000 tickets.

The festival – beneath the arches of Waterloo station – featured more than 3,000 performances of 350 shows across eight weeks. 

Its tickets sales were up by more than 22,000 from last year.

The festival included a strong comedy strand, comprising more than 125 shows, with the likes of Joe Lycett, Bridget Christie, Richard Gadd, Phil Wang and James Acaster taking part. Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Adam Riches, pictured, performed five different shows over five night, while Liam Williams hosted a work-in-progress season.

In a statement, the festival directors Andy George, Mat Burt and Tim Wilson said: ‘We're overwhelmed by the response to this year's festival and are extraordinarily grateful for the trust of the artists, the commitment of those we work with, and the support of ever-growing numbers of audiences we've received.’
