For two days The Lovely Bug Ball is coming to VAULT festival in London. It is part workshop/part show where children and adults work together to build a lovely bug that they take to the ball and then dance with the biggest, loveliest bug of them all. 

The show has been designed for all ages and abilities including those with Autistic Spectrum Conditions. Performances are relaxed, friendly and inclusive and audience members are free to go or stay as they wish. Visual Stories are available for anyone who would like one.  

We are working hard to create a playful experience that can be enjoyed by as many people as possible, whatever their age. The ethos for this show is about co-operation and co-creation. 

We want to make work with as few barriers to access as possible; be they physical, financial or social and our aim for this Crowdfunder project is to get as many donations as we can to give a local audience who might encounter these barriers a free ticket to come and see what we do and take part in a great show. 


This project offers rewards in return for your donation.
