Mortified Live London - #VAULTFestival2019 


The Vaults,
Leake Street,


Running Time : 1 hour


Show Details

Mortified revolves around people sharing the embarrassing artefacts they created as teenagers, diaries, poetry or novels etc. In the process, they reveal stories about their lives. It’s funny and often heartwarming.


The show itself is a global phenomenon. There are chapters around the world where people come together to share their teen angst. The podcast was voted the ‘No.1 Storytelling podcast’ by the Guardian. There is a documentary and a 6 part TV show on Netflix. But the heart of Mortified is the live experience.


We are the London chapter. We’ve been going for 3 years now and we’re presenting a special late night lonely hearts edition of Mortified Live at the Vaults festival for Valentine's day. Come and bear witness as our brave participants share their teenage romantic misadventures.


Mortified London is the London chapter of the international show Mortified. Mortified has been running for 16 years and now has chapters all over the world, just like a cult. The only real difference between Mortified and a cult is that we're not a cult.

Venue Details

The Vaults,
Leake Street,

Eight unbelievable venues, three stylish bars and a top-notch restaurant, all hidden beneath Waterloo. From 6pm until the early hours, there’s nowhere else you need to be. Welcome to VAULT 2016

“The business model for the creative industries is broken. For every performer at Edinburgh working for nothing, read musician on Spotify or writer on the net. Providers of content make peanuts, while the controllers of the infrastructure… walk away with extraordinary profits. … How can we transfer some of the wealth grabbed by, say, hotels in Edinburgh and hand it to the people who generated it?”
Patrick Collinson, The Guardian, 29 / 8 / 15

We want VAULT Festival to be the people’s festival. For six weeks, join this carnival of experience, filled with entertainment and around every corner an unexpected adventure. From hard-hitting drama to outrageous comedy, from dance to late-night parties, VAULT takes in the bravest and best of the next generation of creators.

“It’s risky to bring a show [to Edinburgh Festival] that you know needs a lot of development in the faint hope that someone will spot a gold nugget and offer to help nurture it. In any case, if you are only here with something in the hope of catching someone’s eye, you are selling audiences short. They should be the people you really make the show for, not some producer who may or may not pitch up.”
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian, 20 / 8 / 15

We put up the flag here at the edge of theatreland, and gather acts & artists, bands & companies from all over to come and make something unforgettable. It’s their festival, and we’re inviting you to celebrate it with us.

We’re doing our best to reinvent the non-funded creative sector and make it sustainable for both the artist and the festival. What we give is space: to innovate, take risks and cooperate with each other. We don’t charge rent. We do take 30% of show box office, which goes some way – but not all the way towards covering our costs. In this way, Artists and Festival live or die together.
Come and see what the people have made: there’s a conversation every single night about where we go from here. There’s three great bars, fantastic food and enough entertainment to make the outside world irrelevant as long as our doors are open.


Halfway down Leake Street (the Graffiti Tunnel). Please do not go to the Launcelot Street entrance. The venue can be hard to find – please leave more time than you usually would.
