An infatuation with pets has become part of a generational identity, with millennials fuelling a spending boom on four-legged friends and Instagram awash with fluffy celebrities. This Friday Late, take part in a therapy pig session and experience performances for pets. Explore an animal-dating app and question the evolution of digital pets. See dancers explore animal domestication and uncover stories of pets within the V&A collections. Assistance dogs registered with Assistance Dogs UK are welcome, but please note pets and other animals are not permitted in the V&A.

All events are free and places are designated on a first-come, first-served basis unless stated otherwise. Filming and photography will take place at this event. If you have any access requirements, please let us know in advance by emailing

Please note, if the V&A reaches capacity we will allow access on a one-in, one-out basis.
