COSTUMES from the award-winning TV series The Tudors are on show at the Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

The costumes went on display in the AV Theatre of the Mary Rose Museum at the weekend and will be there until Thursday, March 31.

Entry can be gained with a ticket to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard or free via the museum shop where it is hoped that the public will donate to the Mary Rose 500 Appeal to help build the new museum.

It is the first time the costumes have been on display in the UK.

They are on loan courtesy of designer Joan Bergin and the creator and writer of The Tudors, Michael Hirst, who will be visiting the Mary Rose Museum for an event on March 24 to talk about the series. Tickets for the event are £10 and proceeds go to the Mary Rose 500 Appeal.

Mr Hirst said: ‘I am delighted to offer my support to the new Mary Rose Museum appeal and would encourage everyone with an interest in British history to support it too, and perhaps contribute something towards the £35m which it will cost to transform the museum into a wonderful contemporary space through which to explore our extraordinary past.’
