Costumes from the BBC TV Series ‘Gentleman Jack’

Price: Free

Event description

A world exclusive exhibition of costumes by renowned designer Tom Pye, Costume Designer on both seasons on Gentleman Jack, for the BBC One TV Series ‘Gentleman Jack’.

Written by Sally Wainwright, Gentleman Jack  tells the story of Anne Lister (1791-1840) of Shibden Hall and her relationship with local landowner Ann Walker (1803-1854).

The exhibition features over 30 iconic costumes worn by the cast in series two, including Suranne Jones (Anne Lister), Sophie Rundle (Ann Walker) and Gemma Whelan (Marian Lister). The famous top hat that Suranne Jones wore as Anne Lister during filming will take pride of place alongside other recognisable garments and accessories.
