Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Unfortunately this exhibition has now closed.

London's own Angels Costumiers has been supplying clothing and accessories to the entertainment industry for 175 years, and now owns eight miles of hanging costume. Their wares have dressed actors in Oscar-winning films, Tony Award-winning plays, summer blockbusters and classic British TV series. This exhibition will see 100 specially chosen costumes go on display, and visitors will see items made especially for Fred Astaire, Laurence Olivier, Meryl Streep and many more, as well as photographs, letters and artefacts that give an insight into the exhibits' history.

Arranged in date order, the costumes will lead visitors through the early Victorian era right through to the present day, with interactive elements such as measurement forms and a workshop room along the way. A central display will feature outfits you won't fail to recognise thanks to their starring roles in the likes of 'Titanic', 'Indiana Jones' and 'Queen Elizabeth I'.
