David Bowie private viewing and drinks at the V&A

This special event, which took place on Tuesday, 18 June 2013, included a private viewing of the David Bowie is exhibition followed by a drinks reception in the Ruddock Gallery at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

This event was unsurprisingly popular with over 250 Old Edwardians, current and former parents, and friends attending.

We would like to thank Sir Paul Ruddock (1976), Old Edwardian and Chairman of the V & A Board, who generously sponsored this event.

The David Bowie is exhibition

The V&A was given unprecedented access to the David Bowie Archive to curate the first international retrospective of his extraordinary career. The exhibition featured more than 300 objects including handwritten lyrics, original costumes, fashion, photography, film, music videos, set designs and Bowie's own instruments. Find out more.

The Ruddock gallery

The Paul and Jill Ruddock gallery features large-scale works which were once part of impressive Renaissance buildings, displayed around a courtyard and garden, with dramatic sculptures, trees and water. Find out more.
