Step back in time as Sovereign Hill’s Gold Museum hosts a special event ‘Behind the Seams’, celebrating the iconic 1950s looks of the Doctor Blake television series.

Part of the exhibition ‘Doctor Blake’s Ballarat’ designed by the show’s own production designer, Carrie Kennedy, and curated by the Gold Museum, this special event will be held on Saturday 27 May. Providing attendees with a glimpse of what goes into producing the iconic looks of the television show’s characters, this one-off event will excite both Dr Blake and fashion fans.

‘Behind the Seams’ will allow visitors to meet the team behind Doctor Blake and Jean’s hair, makeup and costumes. Louise McCarthy, the series’ Costume Designer, and John Logue, Hair and Makeup Designer, will discuss how they achieve the show’s vintage look.

This event will provide attendees with a glimpse of what goes on behind the camera of this internationally successful show. It will include a panel session, an audience Q and A, and a guided tour of the exhibition. The exhibition features eleven of the Doctor Blake costumes, as well as images, fabric swatches, set sketches, and props to show how the series comes to life.
