History, food and fashion in Bendigo
On Sunday 14th January, Cregan Creative is hosting a unique overnight trip from Melbourne to Bendigo, including an opportunity to view the acclaimed 'The Costume Designer Exhibition' at Bendigo Art Gallery alongside a gallery expert.

As this popular exhibition must close on January 21st 2017, this will be one of the last opportunities to see this spectacular showcase of award-winning costumes by celebrated American costume designer Edith Head.

Curated by Bendigo Art Gallery, who worked closely with a team from Paramount Pictures Archives, this stunning exhibition features more than seventy costumes designed by Head from the 1930s to the 1960s taken from the archives of Paramount as well as from the Collection of Motion Picture Costume Design and other private collections.

'The Costume Designer' is a must for those who love the history of fashion, beautiful fabrics and the colour and movement of The Golden Age of Hollywood.

In addition to the immersive exhibition experience, this guided tour of Bendigo includes lunch and dinner in some of Bendigo's finest eateries, overnight accommodation (including breakfast) and return transport to Melbourne the next day!

The tour is held in a small intimate group - why not come along with your best friend and enjoy a fun trip together or come solo and meet new like-minded friends! The all-inclusive cost is $380 per person (twin share) or $450 for single accommodation.

Price includes:

  • Return transport to Bendigo from Melbourne CBD
