New Game Plan: Board Games Rediscovered
Open until 23 April 2017
Are you a Scrabble Champion? A wannabee Chess grandmaster? Or a Monopoly megalomaniac? Game Plan: Board Games Rediscovered celebrates the joy, excitement and occasional frustration of playing board games. On display are some of the most iconic, enthralling and visually striking games from the V&A’s outstanding national collection of board games. Alongside current family favourites such as Cluedo and Trivial Pursuit, and traditional games like chess, the exhibition charts the evolution of game play, from the ancient, to the 18th century and on to nostalgic 80s classics.

|Tales: Photography by Sonya Hurtado |
Until 8 JanuaryFREE
Hackney based photographer, Sonya Hurtado, explores the imaginary world of childhood. Set in the context of fairy tales and children’s stories, her images are conceived almost like paintings, full of colour and vibrancy. With inspiration from surrealism, film and much more, the manipulation of shadow, light and colour creates a playful and at times almost sinister atmosphere. Take FREE a Digital Photo Collage workshop with the artist 26 November, 3 or 10 December.
