Dressed by angels

This brand new interactive exhibition tells the story behind the world’s greatest costume house, presenting visitors with an irresistible mix of costumes, drama and history.

Angels Costumiers has been dressing the world for 175 years, including Oscar and BAFTA Award winning films. Over seven generations of one family, Angels has become the premiere costumier to the world.

From Lawrence of Arabia to Titanic, from Dickens to Lillie Langtry, and from Military to Royalty: you know it, Angels has dressed it. Visitors will get exclusive access to costumes from films including Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Star Wars, The Iron Lady and The Grand Budapest Hotel; TV shows Morecombe and Wise, Dr Who, 2015’s Poldark and Downton Abbey; and blockbuster musical Wicked.

Over 100 costumes have been carefully selected from Angel’s illustrious back catalogue for display. Visitors will see bespoke costumes made for Fred Astaire, Noel Coward, Laurence Olivier, Tom Baker, Judi Dench, Cate Blanchett and Meryl Streep, to name just a few. Alongside the costumes will be photographs and fascinating letters and artefacts, providing an insight into showbiz history.

Appealing to the entire family, the exhibition finishes with a look into the world of fancy dress and how so many of these costumes have their beginnings in the elaborate original film and theatre pieces.

At the Old Truman Brewery from 2 October 2015 until 3 January 2016


Tuesday 9th September – Cake Decorating

WelcomClock 7.30e back everyone after our summer break.

Firstly a few changes :  We are moving  to the back room where we will also have access to the small kitchen area. Making the tea and coffee will be much easier so don’t forget to bring your own mug to save using nasty paper ones.

We also want to encourage you all to arrive before 7.30 so we can get started straight away to make the most of our time

The Cake BoxOn Tuesday we will welcome Joanna from The Cake Box in Station Road

Joanna will be demonstrating and giving us all the chance to make a 3” cake topper.  You may want to bring an apron and if anyone has a small marble rolling pin bring that along as well.  Once you have completed your topper I am sure you will all want to take it home so we suggest a small box to carry it in.
