A collection of costumes, jewellery, props and memorabilia from major Hollywood films and a Netflix blockbuster will be on display in Ely Cathedral from 1st February to 15th March 2020.
‘Crowns & Gowns’ will showcase original dresses and outfits from some of the iconic films shot inside Ely’s beautiful medieval Cathedral namely The Other Boleyn Girl, The King’s Speech, Macbeth, Elizabeth:The Golden Age and The Crown.
These productions bought a constellation of Hollywood stars to Ely Cathedral including Cate Blanchett, Geoffrey Rush, Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Michael Fassbender and Colin Firth. In addition to the costumes, the exhibition will also include a few pieces of genuine movie memorabilia such as original film scripts, daily call sheets and on set photographs.
Joss Palmer, Events Manager at Ely Cathedral says “This is something we have been considering doing for some years and it has been an exciting journey to bring it to fruition. It has been a real privilege to have the Cathedral used as a location for such prestigious movies and television shows and we are grateful to the film industry for their continued support. If the event proves popular, we hope to follow Crowns & Gowns with a larger scale exhibition in the summer of 2021”.
