Whilst visiting today we decided to take a look at the Behind the Seams exhibition that is currently on at Preston Park Museum and Grounds.
Within the exhibition, there are a collection of 35 costumes from the big and small screen as well as the theatre, all are from Angels Costumes, hand-picked the stunning costumes showcasing from films such as Disney’s Beauty and The Beast as well as the much-anticipated remake of the film Dumbo which comes out this year.
There really is something for everyone and I can’t imagine anyone walking around not recognising any of the costumes. With Games of Thrones, Dr Who, Indiana Jones, The Nutcracker, Shakespeare in Love, Poledark and Titanic to name a few more all on display.
There are little display boards up next to each costume giving a little background information on the costumes and you can purchase a guide for £1.50 which has a little more information on and is great for taking home to remember your visit. With the opportunity to see so many iconic costumes here in the North East I would recommend getting along before the exhibition finished on Sunday 3rd March.
Tickets can be booked in advance online here.
