DRESSED FOR DRAMA COSTUME EXHIBITION AT WORCESTER CATHEDRAL - TV AND FILM COSTUME EXHIBITION LAUNCH.

The launch is imminent of Dressed for Drama, an exhibition of period costume from British television and film. The exhibition that will be set in the beautiful and historic setting of the Cathedral’s Chapter house opens at 10am on Monday 1st August, with an official launch reception that evening.
Peter Atkinson, The Dean of Worcester said “Some of the costumes have fascinating connections to the story of the Cathedral. The costumes of Henry VIII reminds us of his elder brother Prince Arthur, who died prematurely in 1502 and whose tomb you can see in the Cathedral. The medical costumes of a World War I soldier and nurse remind us of the many World War I names commemorated in the Cloister windows just outside the Chapter house.”

The exhibition is exclusive to Worcester Cathedral and has been devised, created and organised by a small in-house team.
Some of the thirty five period costumes from London costumiers have never been on public display before. The costumes to be displayed are from popular programmes such as Downton Abbey, Mr Selfridge and Poldark. Also from award winning productions, such as the Bafta winning Wolf Hall and Oscar nominated The Danish Girl.
