Victoria and Albert Museum

The world’s greatest museum of art and design

The V&A’s Theatre and Performance collections contain a large number of resources on the history of Black performance, including theatre, music and dance.

You may not have thought of including a gift to a museum in your will, but the V&A is a charity and legacies form an important source of funding for our work.

Legacies of all sizes, large and small, make a real difference to what we can do and your support can help ensure that future generations enjoy the V&A as much as you have.
