Take a peek behind the scenes at costumes, scripts and other materials used to create your favourite film and TV shows. 



The goodies will be on display in Piccadilly for two years at BAFTA‘s first public exhibition.

You can see costumes worn by Jodie Comer in Killing Eve.

Or, gaze at the original development sketches and scripts from 1960’s and ’70’s children’s favourite The Clangers.

An elaborate wig used in Oscar-nominated The Favourite will also be on show at BAFTA: Behind the Screens.

The Duke of Cambridge, who is President of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, opened the new venue; BAFTA Piccadilly.

It houses both the exhibition and a café.

Members of the public have two years to visit while, next door, BAFTA’s HQ is undergoing a major refurbishment.

The exhibition celebrates and champions the creativity and talent of BAFTA winners and nominees over the past 75 years.

“It is an honour to have [Killing Eve costumer designer] Phoebe de Gaye’s work showcased as part of BAFTA’s new exhibition,” says Sally Woodward-Gentle.

Sally was the BAFTA-winning producer on Killing Eve.

“I’m delighted the public will get to see the costumes which help bring Villanelle’s character to life, alongside many other deserving BAFTA-winning and nominated projects,” she adds.

Over the next two years, the elements on display will change on a rolling basis with a programme that will reflect the diverse crafts, awards, categories and genres that BAFTA is involved in.
