|The Old Vic Tunnels|
The Old Vic has acquired a licence from Lambeth Council to use Tunnels 228-332 beneath Waterloo Station as a performance venue in 2010 and have named them The Old Vic Tunnels.
The Old Vic Tunnels will be home to a series of innovative and surprising arts events. Beginning in February, The Old Vic will curate at least four shows throughout 2010. The season will feature a range of work to appeal to a diverse audience.
The performance venue will also host unique ‘pop-up’ events and film screenings throughout the year. The Old Vic will collaborate with a variety of partners ranging from theatre groups, visual artists, film-makers and musicians to create powerful aural and visual experiences.
Graffiti Artist Banksy has recently worked with the Old Vic in the tunnel creating The Lambeth Palace pop up cinema, accessed through Leake Street. It is a 150 seat auditorium labelled London's newest, darkest and dirtiest cinema. Previewing Banksy’s first film, Exit through the Gift Shop, Leake Street has received a considerable amount of media attention.
