Family day out at the Pink Floyd Exhibition.
I took my parents to see the first international retrospective of one of the world’s most iconic bands Pink Floyd at the V&A, London.
The exhibition is huge, as the v&A usually do with these collections and could take you a couple of hours to get around if you want to take it all in. The minimum time would be an hour, and I think it’s good to know that before going in.
The displays were incredible, the history line and the way the exhibition pulls you into the story of the band over the years made for an amazing multi sensory experience.
The exhibition is a spectacular audio-visual journey through Pink Floyd’s unique and extraordinary worlds, chronicling the music, design and staging of the band, from their debut in the 1960s through to the present day.
Taking my parents around the exhibition who experienced a lot of it first hand back in the 60’s and 70’s was an amazing experience for us all. It’s so nice to relive something with them I have only heard about it dinner table exchanges.
The displays of photos, videos, documentaries, artwork, fashion and instruments really make you feel part of their world.
The last part of the exhibition is a multi sensory video/music display which you can’t film but it was the best part of the whole exhibition.
If any of you get tired of walking their are parts where you can sit but I would advice asking for a foldable chair to take around with you – they are happy to provide these.
Tickets cost £25-30 and it’s only on until October 15th, so make sure to get down quick! Obviously weekends are busy but queues go fairly quickly.
