Choose Life, Choose An Immersive Trainspotting Experience
Join the drug-fuelled characters of Trainspotting at a special season at The Vaults.

If the thought of The Worst Toilet In Scotland fills you with dread, look away now. An immersive theatre production of hit film Trainspotting is coming to The Vaults, to mark the 20th anniversary of its release in cinemas.

Join ultra-violent Begbie, anti-hero Renton, con artist Sick Boy, Spud and the other drug-taking, boozy characters of Irvine Welsh's classic.

Following two sell-out seasons at The King's Head Theatre, this will be an  11-week-only production. It will see subterranean venue The Vaults transformed into a special performance space, with some of the audience seated all around the space amidst the action, and a limited number of traditional theatre seats.

Trainspotting runs 3 November-15 January at The Vaults, Launcelot Street, SE1 7AD. Tickets are £20-35, available from the box office.
