Victoria & Abdul

Movies in the Village Hall will be screening "Victoria and Abdul" as part of its autumn season on Friday 20 October. Starring Judi Dench and Ali Fazal, the film tells the story of Queen Victoria's unlikely friendship with her young Indian clerk Abdul Karim.
If you can't wait for the film itself, you can get a taste of the sumptuous costumes worn by taking a trip to Osborne House on the Isle of Wight where they are currently on display. This is the first film ever to use the interiors of the Queen's seaside retreat.
The costumes have been designed by Oscar-nominated costume designer Consolata Boyle with particular attention to detail such as Victoria's V&A monogrammed shoes. Both formal and informal attire worn by Dame Judi can be seen and amongst Ali Fazal's costumes is a faithfully recreated scarlet and gold livery with a peacock-blue striped silk turban, which was designed for the Queen's Indian servants who waited at table.
The exhibition is in Victoria's Indian-inspired Durbar Room, which features in the film, until 30 September.
