Return to 7-days a week opening 

Digital Media
March 7, 2022

We’re excited to reveal our plans to return to opening 7-days a week from Monday 4 April, as well as a full public programme of free events including the relaunch of Fashion in MotionFriday Late, and the Performance Festival. You will no longer need to book timed tickets for general admission to the V&A’s permanent galleries, and exhibition tickets for Mondays and Tuesdays are now available. 

Alongside 7-day opening, our pre-pandemic programming will resume: late opening hours on Fridays and contemporary Friday Lates on the last Friday of every month, starting from 25 March with the theme ‘Pretty Useless Things’. With a line-up of workshops, talks and installations, the Late will explore the joys and contradictions found in aspirational objects, and concepts of functionality in the context of the modern world.

Fashion in Motion, the live fashion events held at the museum, will return on 18 March, this month featuring a specially commissioned fashion performance from designer Harris Reed. Tickets will be available from 8 March.  

Our annual Performance Festival will also return to the museum for the first time since 2019, to celebrate dance in all its forms. Taking place from 23 April – 1 May 2022, the week-long programme will run alongside the display On Point: Royal Academy of Dance at 100 in the Theatre and Performance galleries. Highlights will include live dance performances from Fubunation and Jody Oberfelder, as well as an In Conversation with award-winning choreographer Akram Khan, and gallery tours with V&A Curator Harriet Reed.

Do you also have virtual events e.g. on Zoom or virtual tours, for people that can not come to London or are part of the risk group?

You can filter by Online in What’s On section of main menu, but no virtual tours available permanently.

Members don’t need to book for exhibitions, except when demand is higher, such as now for Fabergé.

Great news, both on the 7 days a week and the Friday late opening.

Hello, do I still need to book a ticket for Faberge or you are fully opened without any reservation? I will be in London only 2 today and want to join the exhibition. Thank you

The site says that the V & A is open 7 days a week, but I cannot find the opening hours. Where are they on the internet site? Or can somebody please tell me what they are?
