Costumes from The King’s River on show in the Longshed 25 May to 3 June

An exhibition of costumes designed by Claire Lyth for the 2017 sell-out production of The King’s River will be on show in The Longshed between May 25 and June 3 from 10am until 4pm daily.

Special events during the week include: extracts from a film of the original production, demonstrations and discussions about the costumes, a musical “performance”, and poetry readings.

The exhibition will show some of the magic of the backstage story behind The King’s River, demonstrating the work of the volunteer sewers and knitters of Woodbridge and how they worked with Claire to bring an interpretation of the story of King Raedwald and the discovery of the Sutton Hoo burial ship to life in a tangible way.
