It’s Been A Pleasure
Through our work with similar organisations such as the Wallace Collection, we were approached by Art Happens to make a film aimed at raising funds for the Pleasure Gardens. This is one of the main attractions at the Museum of London and is described as ‘an immersive space inspired by the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens in its heyday’. The gallery includes twelve mannequins dressed in clothing and accessories from the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
Smashing the Target
Before any new piece of rare clothing (some of which can be up to 250 years old) can go on display, it will need to be conserved and have a custom-made mannequin produced. Our film took viewers behind the scenes to give would be donors an insight into how those pieces are cared for. The museum set a target of £10,000 and the campaign proved to be so successful they smashed that figure by 33 per cent.
