It will also reinstate late opening hours on Fridays and contemporary Friday Lates on the last Friday of every month, starting from the 25 March with the theme ‘Pretty Useless Things’, which will “explore the joys and contradictions around aspirational objects and concepts of functionality in the context of the modern world”.
The V&A’s annual Performance Festival will also return to the museum for the first time since the pandemic began, to “celebrate dance in all its forms”.
