Hollywood costumes on display in Stockton

Film and TV fans get their money’s worth, as a popular attraction is returning to the region.

The Preston Park Museum in Stockton is home to its Behind the Seams exhibit, an exhibition of costumes from some of the world’s most famous film and television productions.

Behind the Seams features 30 costumes from some of the most iconic and popular movies and TV blockbusters, including The Crown, Fantastic Beasts, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, It’s a Sin, Judy, Rocket Man, Shakespeare in Love and James Bond.

It brings together a largely new costume collection. Some are originals worn by the stars and some are exact replicas of the original designs.

Since 1840, Angels has been dressing the stars of the stage, screen and television for seven generations.

Angels, dubbed the largest costume house in the world, has supplied costumes for 37 Academy. Award-winning films and received a 2016 BAFTA for outstanding British contribution to cinema.

Film and television enthusiasts are delighted that this superb exhibit has returned to the Preston Park Museum. Over the next few months, they will get up close and personal with the fantastic costumes from some of the most popular television shows and blockbuster films ever produced.
