Twenty dazzling 1930s evening gowns take centre stage in the 'Putting on the Glitz' exhibition, which reveals how the glitz and glamour of Hollywood was reflected in the fashions of the period.

Highlights include an evening dress that belonged to the daughter of the Chief Officer on the Titanic and a pearl and diamanté encrusted silk wedding dress.

The exhibition will also include a set of striking 1930s fashion illustrations, which were designed for George Henry Lee & Co. by local illustrator Miss Winifred Aileen Brown.
