Pop-up Performance for Early Years

Early Years performances run on the first Saturday of every month and during most school holidays.

From music and drama workshops to puppetry, dance and storytelling, join in with our performers or just watch as the magic unfolds. These are ideal for families with under 5s but older siblings are welcome too.

Early Years performances are supported by Outset Family.

The Wolsey Angels Appeal

We urgently need your help to raise the £5,000,000 it will cost for the V&A to acquire four Renaissance angels cast for the tomb of Cardinal Wolsey and later in the possession of Henry VIII.
