You may be aware that the V&A is developing the V&A East Storehouse, which is a 16,000m2 purpose-built home for over 250,000 objects, 350,000 library books and 1,000 archives, which will include the Theatre and Performance Collections. Replacing Blythe House as our collection and research centre, V&A East Storehouse will be one of many ways in which we are looking to significantly increase and improve access into our collection. As part of this, we are developing an appointment booking service for visitors wishing to see collection material stored at V&A East and across other V&A sites in the future. As we hope that you, and the IFTR membership, will be regular users of the Theatre and Performance collections, we would like to welcome you and IFTR members to help us shape this service through a user survey (15-minute). The survey will be anonymous and all survey data will be used for the V&A’s internal planning and development activities only.
