Step ‘Behind the Screens’ and get up close to some of the best costumes from film and television at Normanby Hall’s new exhibition.

Opening on Saturday 2 March, Behind the Screens features costumes worn by Orlando Bloom in Pirates of the Caribbean, Johnny Depp in Sleepy Hollow, Helen Bonham Bonham Carter in The King’s Speech and many more.

The famous outfits will be showcased next to original period pieces from North Lincolnshire Museum’s collection so you can see how costume specialists have been inspired by real historic garments.

The exhibition is spread across two floors of the Hall itself, with regalia on display in six of the public rooms.

Cllr Elaine Marper, cabinet member responsible for Normanby Hall on North Lincolnshire Council, said:

“Not only is this new exhibition a chance to see these famous costumes on display, it will provide a fascinating insight into how these fictional works take inspiration from real clothes of the time. You’ll be able to get up close and see the intricacies of these pieces.”

Entry to the exhibition is included in park entry. Annual pass holders get in free.

If you’re not already an annual pass holder, make the most of your visit to Normanby Hall Country Park and get one online or from the gift shop. Annual passes start from as little as £22 and let you enjoy the Hall and gardens as often as you like for a full year.

Behind the Screens is open daily from 10.30am to 5pm from 2 March to 29 September 2019.
