Backstage at Blythe House


Theatre & Performance Department, V&A, at Blythe House

With the preparations for our move to the V&A’s new Collections and Research Centre in Stratford, we will be closing from 18 December 2020 to Spring/Summer 2023.  Until then, we would like to give you unprecedented access to our collections in Blythe House through a range of backstage tours given by the curators of the Theatre & Performance Department. Every month we will touch on a different subject, including Shakespeare, circus, costumes, dance and film, and show you the collection’s treasures. Our first tours are now available online so book before they are sold out.

Tickets are £10 / £5 concessions for the hour long tour and will take place at the V&A’s current Collections Centre Blythe House near Olympia, London.
