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 disability@vam.ac.uk.

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