Take a look behind the scenes of the world’s greatest costume house with Dressed by Angels at the Old Truman Brewery.

The interactive exhibition tells the enthralling story of Angels Costumiers, a company that, over seven generations of one family, has provided the costumes for countless award-winning film, television and theatre productions. A compelling mixture of drama, costumes and history, the exhibition shows off many of their most famous efforts created over the last 175 years.

From Oscar to BAFTA winners, there are a huge number of instantly recognisable costumes to see. Highlights include costumes from the likes of Doctor Who, Lawrence of Arabia, Titanic, Star Wars, Downton Abbey, Morecambe and Wise, Indiana Jones, Only Fools and Horses, Wicked and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Find yourself being transported from Dickens’ London through two world wars and on to the days of Ealing comedies, the swinging sixties and the blockbusters of the 1980s, by delving into a treasure trove of items from much-loved films and television shows.
