V&A stages Musicals free season of events this April

The (sadly Tory-tainted) V&A are offering a free nine-day season of musical-related events, from 22 to 30 April.

Performances, workshops, talks and screenings are all promised. You can also visit their exhibition Re:Imagining Musicals which runs until June 4th, and then reopens from August for some time.

Find more information at the V&A website by searching on musicals, although the information is very scattered.
