Personal items from the world of showbiz!

Remember that fabulous wedding dress Becky Granger wore on TV's Coronation Street? How about the coat worn in the Hollywood cult movie: 'Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey'? Now you have the chance to see these and even more amazing artefacts.

A remarkable one-off exhibition on tour from Ideas, brings together some of the most iconic showbiz props ever to grace the town. Normally kept locked away from public view, the immediately recognisable items will be on show for all to see. 

Star attraction in the exhibition has to be Marilyn Monroe's Little Black Dress. Who knows what glittering Hollywood events she would have worn this to? Fans of the golden days of Hollywood can also see Fred Astaire's shoes and Doris Day's exquisite rhinestone bracelet.

Visitors of all ages will instantly recognise props from some of the most famous movies; from 'Titanic' to 'The Flintstones' and 'The Addams Family'. There is also the spectacular god of mischief costume from the hilarious movie 'Son of the Mask', while for sci-fi fans there are the electro-magnetic boots from the hugely successful film 'Face Off' starring John Travolta and Nicholas Cage. 

But it's not just film fans who are in for a thrill. For music fans there are signed items by such stars as Chuck Berry and Oasis. There is even a Michael Jackson 'Dangerous Tour' jacket.

Families will enjoy the opportunity to dress up and play their favourite songs on the jukebox - don't forget to take a selfie!
