OTHERS GALLERY SHOW CANCELLED: The Victoria & Albert Museum has dropped its planned Friday Late event, scheduled for tomorrow evening. The show was to have featured The Others, Tell Tales, Patrick Neate, Helen Walsh, Tom Sheahan, a rather tasty line-up. Unfortunately, too tasty, says the musuem:

With regret, the V&A is cancelling the Friday Late on 25th February. We have been surprised by the incredibly high level of interest in this event. We have been told by our security, health and safety advisers that when the numbers reach this high level for a single event with limited capacity, there is a danger of severe overcrowding and it is extremely difficult to guarantee safety. To avoid any risk to the public or the Museum's collections, we have therefore taken the decision to cancel the event. We apologise for any disappointment this will cause.
