The Costume Gallery was revamped in Autumn 2011, featuring both a main exhibition and a smaller 'costume of the month' display.
Vintage and retro are the buzz words this season for cafes, home décor, fashion and most of all weddings! Vintage wedding fairs are sweeping the country, bunting is festooning the walls, pretty floral china is being purchased, record players are being dusted off or 1950’s bands are engaged. Bridal shops are reproducing dresses such as the ones on display here, which date from 1920 to 1950: the eras that are now treated as vintage.
The exhibition opens on 1 June and runs until December 2013.
