Continuing to spread the Vans culture and ethos on a global scale, House of Vans‘s latest venture sees a new multipurpose space located in the five Old Vic Tunnels under Waterloo Station, London. The gigantic 3,000 square-foot space acts as a music venue, gallery, artist studios, cafe, cinema, bar and skatepark. With the unveiling of this new creative venue, Vans looks to host workshops for the public free of charge, while also teaming up with UK charity Old Vic New Voices to nurture young acting talents in performing arts.

During the opening event last Thursday, one of the tunnels hosted the “Scissors & Glue” exhibition which celebrated zine culture by showcasing works from British artists Will Sweeney and Ben Drury. The event brought together Vans global skate community with pros like Geoff Rowley, Curren Caples and Chris Pfanner mingling next to legends like Tony Alva and Christian Hosoi. Celebrating the different musical subcultures Vans continues to attract, a steller line-up of contemporary acts – Illumsphere, Savages, Toddla T and Roots Manuva — took stage alongside seminal hip-hop outfit Public Enemy. Enjoy the recap images here and check out the London House of Vans for yourself if you’re in the capital. Head over to the official site to book skate sessions, gig tickets and for all the information you need about the new London House of Vans.
