Friday Late: Design For Our Times

Join us and London's emerging artists and designers after hours for our first onsite Friday Late in over a year

+44 (0)20 7942 2000
  • V&A South Kensington

    Cromwell Road
    London, SW7 2RL

  • Museum-wide

  • Free event

We're back with a night of live performances, workshops, DJing and installations.
Entry to Friday Late is included when you book a free, timed ticket to the museum – or you can walk-up without a ticket, but if we're busy you may need to wait.
This month's programme explores what design can do today, from design thinking in a time of climate crisis to challenging inequalities in our city landscapes. Walk on water in an immersive aluminum installation and see a couture gown grow in real time on the world's first artist robot. Watch a ribbon dancer spin the graph curves of our forecasted futures and explore spatial inequality in architecture while you dance.
All events are free and places are designated on a first-come, first-served basis unless stated otherwise.
All our exhibitions will be open at Friday Late – book your tickets in advance.
Filming and photography will take place at this event. If you have any access requirements, please let us know in advance by emailing
