Come dressed to impress in your favourite threads for the latest Museum Up Late event inspired by the Tweed Regional Museum’s exciting exhibition, Social Fabric.

Dress in your favourite fashion piece – whether it be chic, classic, grunge or your very own unique creation – and enjoy a free night of fun, fashion, performances and fabulous people on Saturday 27 May at the GLAM: Red Carpet Party at the Museum.

On the night, get a glam-up at the Salon, the Museum’s in-house hair and make-up haus, before you get snapped by the paparazzi team from The Wild Booth Co as you strut your stuff down the red carpet. Our media experts will ensure you shine on camera.

Experience dazzling performances by the outrageous Milena Missi of Queens From Kingscliff – and speak with local fashion designers such as Jason King from JPK Artistry, Kristelle English of Hastings Handmade and Elke Gill who will be modelling their wares.

Make sure to immerse yourself in the playful art of yarn bombing by graffitiing our iconic Robey & Co steam engine with colourful threads. Then, call upon your inner designer and create your own bling range of interesting materials at our Wearable Art Station.

Kids can pick up their own doll-shaped Social Fabric exhibition guide and journey through the show with their museum mate Storm. After gathering inspiration, they can visit the Dressing Room play space and style their own paper doll with cut-out clothes – and don't forget they will need to give them a hairstyle and a face!

We also recommend trying on clothes and accessories in the Dressing Room, dance to tunes by our resident DJ – or take some well-deserved time to relax in the courtyard – all the while enjoying some light nibbles and drinks that will be available for purchase courtesy of the team from The Gin Experience.

GLAM: Red Carpet Party at the Museum will take place on Saturday 27 May from 4 pm – 7.30 pm.

This is a free, all ages event. For more information or to book your free ticket, visit Eventbrite.

A huge thanks to event partners, Queens From Kingscliff entertainment service, The Wild Booth Co, The Gin Experience and Inglot Cosmetics Tweed Heads.

About Social Fabric

Social Fabric displays some of the Museum's never-before-seen clothing collection. Each garment tells a surprising and unexpected story. Drag queen gowns, mermaid costumes, military uniforms and lacy corsets all chronicle the social history of fashion and dressmaking in the Tweed.

From the luxurious to the humble, these textiles weave together the Tweed's social fabric, telling stories of who we are, and how they have shaped our identity.
