Decca partners with V&A for 90th anniversary celebration

Decca Records is partnering with London's V&A to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the UK’s longest living label.

The family-oriented event, which is open to the public, will take place on Sunday, May 5, and see part of the V&A transformed into a celebration of the historic record label. 

Spread over five rooms, it will feature a host of acts and music-focused workshops for children. A number of the label’s artists are set to perform on the day, including Sheku Kanneh-Mason, who performed at the Royal Wedding, and singer-songwriter Rhys Lewis.

There will also be also music history and artefacts, rare memorabilia, a Dansette Disco of 45RPM singles released by Decca and an opportunity for younger attendees to make a musical instrument or design an album sleeve. There will also be a chance at various times throughout the day to see newly restored David Bowie video footage from the 1960s.

Admission is free, but some events may be ticketed on the day.
