House of Vans is a community space based slap bang in the centre of London, under Waterloo station – and best of all, it’s FREE for all to visit. Opened by Vans in 2014 in partnership wiith the local borough, House of Vans has enough room to facilitate a concrete skate park, bowl, concert venue, gallery space, bar and cinema. With a host of incredible events that run year round, House of Vans is what happens when big companies stay true to their roots and it’s an example so many other brands would do well to follow. They’ve put together an end of year review of some of the events that have kicked ass there in 2016
