Erin O’Connor on modelling for McQueen and other talks at the V&A

There are always some great events accompanying the exhibitions at the V&A, but in April there are some especially good talks happening.  First up is Guy Oliver, the designer who specialises in Art Deco and has created some of the most glamorous rooms in the world from Claridge’s to The Princeton Club in New York.  There’s Erin O’Connor on modelling for McQueen in celebration of the V&A’s show Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, plus Jade Jagger talking about making jewellery for over 20 years and where she finds her inspiration.  Then there’s Michael Eavis, pacifist, farmer and founder of Glastonbury talking about music, politics and, of course, the festival itself.  Tickets start at £9 but you’ll need to book soon as we hear that they are selling out fast.
