The venue is cool - albeit slightly damp and smelly. The 'Fantasia' event is a truly awful experience. It's nothing more than a Blue Peter set, in the dark; the only saving grace was the actual Disney music flowing through the headphones (if the headphones...More

Came to see Teddy as we had been here to see Hair last year. The theatre is really unusual underneath Waterloo arches. This time the show was in a different part of the theatre I think. It was transformed beyond recognition. The show itself was...More

Disney’s Fantasia is completely misleading and is enticing many lovers to this shambolic “production.” From technical faults (my headset did not work and when I went to ask for help it was met with surliness) to the subpar performances, it is taking your money. It...More

Here’s a copy of the complaint email I sent. It’s a long one but worth reading if you don’t like wasting your money. To whom it may concern, I’m emailing in response to the ‘Sounds and Sorcery’ show at the Vaults which I visited tonight....More

This is truly awful, please do not waste your time or money. Had to change headphones three times as not working or interference, awful sets and acting. The only saving grace was when the music eventually came through on the headsets. This is an insult...More
