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.
Entry to Bankfield Museum, including the Gentleman Jack costume exhibition, is free and there is no need to book. The collection is displayed in the magnificent surroundings of the museum’s Main Hall and Oak Gallery, which is on the ground floor of the Museum and accessible via the Museum’s disabled entrance.
Please note that Bankfield Museum is open Tuesday to Saturday 10am – 4pm and closed on Sundays and Mondays.
