Les Misérables Costume Exhibition At Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard

Following the success of the Hollywood blockbuster Les Miserablés, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is thrilled to have the Oscar and Bafta nominated costumes from the film on display for the first time in the UK, courtesy of NBC Universal Archives & Collections, this Easter holiday.

In the week of the film’s home release, there will be a special exhibition featuring nineteen costumes and a selection of props on display. Included will be Hugh Jackman’s Valjean convict costume that he wore in his Portsmouth scenes, various costumes worn by Anne Hathaway as Fantine, Isabelle Allen and Amanda Seyfried as Cosette, Natalya Angel Wallace and Samantha Barks as Eponine, Helena Bonham Carter as Madame Thenardier, Colm Wilkinson as the Bishop, Daniel Huttlestone as Gavroche, Aaron Tveit as Enjolras and various other colourful clothing and items iconic to the film.

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard with HMS Victory and Portsmouth Naval Base were both used as locations in the film, giving director Tom Hooper the ideal backdrop he needed for the film’s opening sequence. It is in No. 9 Dock that we first meet Valjean, alongside the other convicts, as they haul a massive ship (based on HMS Victory) in for repair.

The costumes will go on display in the Mary Rose Story building from Friday 29th March until Sunday 14th April 2013. Entry can be gained with a ticket to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard or its attractions or can be purchased separately priced at Adult: £5, Senior: £4, Child: £2.50, Family: £12.50.

    I am so excited at seeing the costumes. I did make some buttons for the production company and was told they were used on Anne Hathaway’s Fantine dress. So I am going to go and see if they did get on one of the dresses.

    So excited, I was lucky enough to be a convict in the film, and was actually in the film. Looking forward to seeing the exhibition.
