Come to the Young V&A’s Summer Festival to Play, Imagine and Design. Join us in celebrating with a weekend-long programme of family-friendly creative activities.

Add to a large-scale physical installation by Leap Then Look that will transform the room into a work of collaborative art as visitors add their own unique contributions. Enjoy performances from local creatives including music, puppetry, and dance, and join-in with a range of hands-on activities across our galleries and creative studios. There will be opportunities to make, build, play and perform throughout the museum.

Highlights will include:
• Dance performances from IMD Legion and One Youth Dance
• An interactive hula hooping performance from The Majorettes
• A new composition from Soundbox Inclusive Ensemble
• Performances from Keynote Opera and Grand Union Orchestra
• Aesthetic Laundry, a local fashion label will share skills in a sustainable design workshop
• A prop and puppet maker will run wearable shadow puppet workshops
