The Glories Of The V&A With Nicholas Coleridge

Nicholas Coleridge by Mike Trow

As he steps down after serving two full terms as Chair of the V&A, Nicholas Coleridge looks back on 10 years of prodigious expansion under his watch, and looks ahead to tell us all about the hugely anticipated Chanel show which opens on 16 September.

He recounts how V&A Dundee is bringing new life to the city and explains how the transformation of the former Museum of Childhood into Young V&A has given thousands of young people and children an exciting new destination in East London. Plus, we hear about securing David Bowie’s priceless archive, what to expect from V&A East, and the vast reserve collection that will be on display to all in the stunning new V&A Storehouse.

This is Nicholas at his most knowledgeable and amusing as he regales us not just with a fascinating outline of the V&A’s glittering success, but also with a delightful sprinkling of personal anecdotes and stories.
