Exhibition: Bridport Undressed

From a ‘haunted’ dress to Queen Victoria’s blanket: what mysteries lie behind the scenes at Bridport Museum?

 ‘Bridport Undressed’ is an exciting new exhibition at Bridport Arts Centre which will show will reveal a unique glimpse behind the scenes- how does the Museum care for 50,000 objects it has in its stores?

Curated by volunteers, this exhibition focusses on the Museum’s fascinating textile collection: from a painted silk dress to Dorset smocks; pantomime dame costumes to frilly bloomers- what are the challenges faced in preserving these items for future generations?

The exhibition is free, with donations extremely welcome to support the work of both organisations.
