Museums at Night: The Costumes of To Walk Invisible

Tom Pye and Eleanor Houghton discuss design of the historic costumes

This is a past event.

Tom Pye and Eleanor Houghton discuss design of the historic costumes

We are delighted to participate in the national Museums at Night initiative once again.
Visitors to this very special ticketed event will join To Walk Invisible costume designer Tom Pye (subject to scheduling commitments) and academic Eleanor Houghton for an exclusive insight into the design and development of the historic costumes for Sally Wainwright’s acclaimed Brontë biopic. Costumes from the drama will be displayed throughout the museum, and Tom and Eleanor will discuss the process of designing and styling the Brontës, balancing the needs of both historical accuracy and televisual flair.
Tom Pye has worked extensively as both a set and costume designer in the worlds of theatre, opera, film and television, collaborating with directors including Peter Brook and Nicholas Hytner. Eleanor Houghton is in the third year of her PhD at the University of Southampton, entitled Decoding Clothing: Charlotte Brontë, ‘Plainness’ and the Language of Dress.
