V&A presents Friday Late
Friday 30 October
October’s Friday Late invites the hotpot of cultural activity that is The Potteries to take over the museum for a night. Explore the making and meaning of ceramics, dine at Wedgwood's pop-up tearoom and move to some Northern Soul as we celebrate with British manufacturers, artists and designers that continue to fire-up Stoke-on-Trent’s ceramic heritage. In collaboration with the British Ceramics Biennial 2015

About Friday Late
Friday Late began in 1999, establishing the much-copied format for London cultural centres' evening events. The programme celebrates all aspects of contemporary visual culture and design in society, bringing audiences face-to-face with both leading and emerging artists and designers. By providing a platform through which to test ideas and challenge convention, Friday Late aims to inspire and provoke, whilst encouraging audiences to interact with the Museum’s collections in new ways.
