Late Nights at the V&A

Every last Friday of every month the V&A stays open after hours and holds an alternative evening of exhibitions, with live performances, cutting-edge fashion, debates, one-off displays, special guests, guest DJs and a bar serving drinks and food.

This month the late night centres around Interiors – i am really excited! There’s a ‘Murder at the V&A Mansion’ game on offer which allows you to explore the deepest corners of the V&A to solve the mytery…there will be talks on what happens when a house becomes a museum, films featuring Tom Hanks and Carey Grant on how not to build Hollywood mansions (!) and workshops with design collectives. I’ve never been before and wonder if i’ll get to try them all…
