Costumes from the film Bright Star, which tells the story of the love affair between John Keats and his 18-year old neighbour Fanny Brawne, went on display at Keats House earlier this week.
There will be three costumes from the film on display – two of Fanny’s and one of Keats’ – and can be seen until November 22.
Michael Welbank, Chairman of the Hampstead Heath Committee said: “We hope these costumes will encourage visitors to come and see for themselves where Keats lived in arguably his most productive period as a poet. We are very grateful to Pathé for lending us the costumes.”
John Fletcher from film distributors Pathé said the firm were “delighted to be working with Keats House and the City of London ahead of the release of Bright Star in the UK, not only for the eagerly awaited costume exhibition but also as a location for much of the film’s promotional activity.”
