Vivien Leigh @ Nyman's

1 June 2016 - 4 September 2016

A new exhibition that explores the life of one of Britain’s most iconic and beautiful actresses, Vivien Leigh, is unveiled on Wednesday 1 June in the family home of her favourite costume and set designer, Oliver Messel.
The exhibition Public Faces, Private Lives includes over 100 pieces from Leigh’s personal archive – on loan from the Victoria and Albert Museum, London  – from costumes and sketches to photographs and scripts.
Amongst the exhibits are objects that reveal more about the private world of this glamorous figure. You’ll find love letters from husband Laurence Olivier, Leigh’s own diaries, and 3D stereoscopic slides that offer ‘behind the scenes’ glimpses into the life of Britain’s first international film star.
