Calling all film buffs… Preston Park Museum is displaying costumes from some of the most iconic film and television productions in its Behind the Seams exhibition.  

Following the success of a similar exhibition held in 2018, the Stockton-on-Tees-based venue is hosting another must-see event, which runs until February 19, 2022.

Behind the Seams features 30 costumes from some of the most well known and loved film and TV blockbusters including The Crown, Fantastic Beasts, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, It’s a Sin, Cruella, Judy, Rocket Man, Shakespeare in Love and James Bond. It brings together a largely new collection of costumes, while the popular dress and shoes from The Red Shoes and the Queen’s Coronation dress from The Crown make a return. Some are originals worn by the stars and some are exact replicas of the original designs.

Behind the Seams explores the stories behind some of TV and film’s most recognisable outfits and their creators, Angels Costumes, the world’s longest established and largest professional costume house. Angels has been dressing the stars of stage, screen and TV since 1840. Dubbed the world’s greatest costume house, Angels has supplied costumes for 37 Academy Award-winning films and in 2016 received a BAFTA for its Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema.
