Newsflash: Theatre of Fashion at the V&A – Alwyn Turner

The theatre is a wonderful place, a house of strange enchantment, a temple of illusion    – Noel Coward

I’m pleased to announce the next date of the Theatre of Fashion In Conversation series at the V&A Theatre and Performance Galleries will be Friday 7th December at 7pm.

In conjunction with the current Halfway to Paradise: The Birth of British Rock, Photographs by Harry Hammond exhibition I will be talking to writer Alwyn Turner, author of the accompanying book. Alwyn’s work covers a diverse range of interests from pulp fiction to fashion and rock & roll with an emphasis on the cultural, social and political history of post-War Britain, including two illustrated tomes on Biba, social histories of the 1970s, 80s and 90s and a biography of Daleks creator Terry Nation.

If you’re unable to attend you can still get involved, as the event will be broadcast as a video and podcast on TheatreVOICE – the leading online audio resource for British theatre.

If that wasn’t reason enough to head to South Ken on the evening of the 7th, the V&A’s Raphael Gallery is hosting Fashion in Motion. This month sees the Fashion Fringe Award-winning design duo Fyodor Golan showing highlights from their collections in four free catwalk shows. Booking is essential, see HERE for more info.

I hope you can make it along!
