Get ready to be dazzled as the V&A gears up for its annual Performance Festival, promising a show-stopping celebration of theatre, live performance, and the arts. And this year is set to be extra special as the museum commemorates 100 years of its extraordinary Theatre and Performance collection. They’ve really pulled out all the stops, curating an incredible line-up of events and programming to mark this momentous occasion, including free screenings of West End shows.

The festival’s theme, ‘remastered’, will delve into the intriguing world of revivals, remakes, and sequels across various art forms. From new and innovative works to reinventing the past for future generations, the Performance Festival is all set to take over the museum throughout the final weeks of April, promising an unforgettable experience.

Among the festival highlights is Bard Behaviour, a variety show extravaganza in honour of Shakespeare’s birthday. This exciting event will feature a mix of drag, ventriloquism, comedy, and clowning. And if that’s not enough, you can also look forward to an eye-catching live performance art display by the Red Ladies, a group of identically dressed women who will be exploring the museum in a truly theatrical way.

But the real treat lies in the free screenings of acclaimed West End productions such as Julius Cesar, A Number (2002 Production), and Accidental Death of an Anarchist. It’s the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in the magic of live theatre without breaking the bank.

One must-see screening is Julius Ceasar, an all-female production that captivated audiences in 2013. This captivating play unfolds the gripping tale of power, betrayal, and corruption within the confines of an all-female prison. However, the festival has much more to offer beyond the screenings, with a thrilling array of workshops on offer including puppetry, song-writing, and even a session exploring the significance of one of Harry Style’s cardigans for the die-hard fans out there.

So, mark your calendars as the V&A Performance Festival kicks off on April 19, and get ready to be swept away by the magic of theatre and live performance. With its diverse and captivating programme, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at this sensational event. Whether you’re a theatre enthusiast, an art lover, or simply looking for a spellbinding and budget-friendly activity in the capital this spring, this festival has it all. Don’t miss out on this extraordinary celebration that promises to be an experience to remember.
