Victoria and Albert Museum

The world’s greatest museum of art and design

The V&A's Theatre and Performance collections chart the history of Music Hall and Variety Theatre. From early song and supper rooms to West End music halls, the birth of the Royal Variety Performance and the rise of Revue in the 20th century.

A gift in your will

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. It is not just the great collectors and the wealthy who leave legacies to the V&A. 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.
