Costume Hero

In March 2018, The Lyceum will premiere a major new musical stage production of Local Hero, in co-production with The Old Vic. Our designers are looking to capture the look of Scotland in 1983 and have put out the call for the people of Scotland asking them to send in family snaps to help them build a picture of life in Scotland in the early eighties.

Get involved! Send us your 80s family pictures and help our designers create the Local Hero costumes.

In March 2018, The Lyceum will premiere a major new musical stage production of Local Hero, in co-production with The Old Vic (read more here). Our designers are looking to capture the look of Scotland in 1983 and have put out the call for the people of Scotland asking them to send in family snaps to help them build a picture of life in Scotland in the early eighties. Informal family pictures are perfect as they often contain several generations in every-day wear, so please dig out your old family snaps, take a picture of them and send them in. Deadline for entry is 7 January 2019.

For inspiration, here are Artistic Director David Greig, and musical legend Mark Knopfler in the 80s:
