Film fans and period clothing enthusiasts will be able to relive the romance of Jane Eyre through a special costume exhibition at Haddon Hall, near Bakewell.
The striking property will be hosting an exhibition from July 28 to September 2, featuring a selection of costumes from the three major adaptations of Charlotte Bronte’s classic Jane Eyre.
Visitors will be able to see three versions of the costumes worn by Jane Eyre and Mr Rochester, as well as a selection of other outfits and accessories in the three adaptations.
The productions, including the 1995 film directed by Franco Zefferelli, the BBC 2006 mini-series starring Ruth Wilson and the latest 2011 film directed by Cary Fukunaga and starring Mia Wasikowska, all feature Haddon Hall as Thornfield Hall.
For the first time Jenny Beavan’s designs for the 1995 film will be on display alongside the 2011 film’s costumes by Michael O’Conner and the TV mini-series’ costumes by John Bright and Andrea Galer.
Entry to Haddon Hall, including the costume exhibition, is £9.50 for adults, £8.50 for concessions, £5.50 for children and £27.50 for a family ticket (two adults, three children).
