THIS WEEK IN 1975: Reunited after 30 years – but only thanks to a kind stranger

Have your say

Call into the Mary Rose Museum and you’ll bump into some TV stars.

Not people, but the Emmy award-winning costumes from The Tudors are back on display at the popular museum.

The costumes are those worn by Jonathan Rhys Meyers as King Henry VIII, Joss Stone as Anne of Cleves, Joely Richardson as Catherine Parr, Maria Doyle Kennedy as Catherine of Aragon, Natalie Dormer as Anne Boleyn, Annabelle Wallis as Jane Seymour and Tamzin Merchant as Catherine Howard.

They were on show in 2010 at the Outstanding Art of Television Costume Design Exhibition in the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising Museum & Galleries, Los Angeles.

They came to the UK for the first time in 2011 where they went on display at the Mary Rose Museum before moving onto the Royal Armouries in Leeds to appear in another exhibition.

Whilst at the museum, this weekend you can make and decorate your own model of the Mary Rose to take home with you.

These creative sessions take place from 11am until 1pm and again from 2pm until 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

Both events are free with a valid admission ticket.
