Vans continue to spread a worldwide love of culture and ethos, this time opening another House of Vans‘s venture located in the five Old Vic Tunnels under Waterloo Station, London.
The 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 opening of something on this scale brought the Vans pros from around the world together with the likes of Geoff Rowley, Curren Caples and Chris Pfanner mingling next to legends like Tony Alva and Christian Hosoi.
Vans enlisted the the help of contemporary acts – Illumsphere, Savages, Toddla T and Roots Manuva who took stage alongside seminal hip-hop outfit Public Enemy.
