Arrive at the New Change building, and head up to the penthouse, stepping out of the lift into Madison. You'll be shown to your pre-booked chalet - hot water bottles, blankets and cushions will keep you warm and cosy!
Begin with a bottle of Moët & Chandon Champagne, before taking your pick of Chalet selection box. Devour a chocolate delight cocktail each, as you enjoy the surrounds.
If you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of a museum, take a look at BBC2’s new series, Secrets of the Museum.
It’s a six part series and it follows the V&A’s specialist teams as they follow the stories of amazing objects, from the old to the new. The programme follows conservators to curators.
Episodes cover the preparation for the 2019 Christian Dior exhibition, the current Mary Quant exhibition, and yet another looks at the recent Cars exhibition.
The objects chosen were having something done to them, such as being transported, cleaned or transferred. You never see this work, as a visitor to the museum and as such it’s hard to imagine the work involved, so the programme takes you behind the scenes.
The V&A’s objects cover over 5,000 years of history, and the hope is that the programmes will help us all appreciate the work done by the V&A on all our behalf.
