SPECIAL EVENT: The V&A invites you to discover some of the amazing stories hidden within its extensive archives stored at Blythe House, near Kensington Olympia as part of the Explore Your Archives campaign.

Enjoy a taste Hollywood glamour with the recently acquired Vivien Leigh archive and Paul Scofield's Oscar for Best Actor, explore the weird and wonderful world of Eduardo Paolozzi’s Krazy Kat Arkive of Twentieth-Century Popular Culture and uncover controversial moments in the V&A’s history such as the suffragette plots and Saatchi & Saatchi’s ‘Ace Caff’ advertising campaign.

These are just a few highlights from our diverse and fascinating archive collections. You’ll also enjoy behind the scenes tours of the stores and learn about what we collect, how we look after it, and how the archives are used.

Places are limited and early booking is recommended.
