Victoria & Albert Museum



The Chairman of the Society’s Planning Committee, Michael Stephen, received an invitation from the museum to discuss their proposed application in October to vary their license for music and alcohol, and met with their Director of Security, Corporate Events Manager, and Project Director, on 8th September.

They are not seeking an extension to the existing hours, but wish to extend the license to other parts of the museum, including the new courtyard which they are constructing on the Exhibition Road frontage, where the original Aston Webb screen is being restored. There will be a new café in the courtyard which will be open from 8am to 6pm every day.  They also wish to extend the license to some of the spaces on the 6th floor.

The Chairman of the Planning Committee saw no reason why the Chelsea Society should object to their application.
