Costumes, sets and props from The Luminaries TV show donated to Hokitika Museum

by Stuff — December 7, 2020

Costumes, sets and props from The Luminaries television show have been donated to a West Coast museum.

Mayor Bruce Smith said Hokitika Museum staff would be busy in the new year assessing and cataloguing production materials from the six-part BBC/TVNZ production of Eleanor Catton’s Booker prize-winning novel The Luminaries.

He said the “generous donation” from producer Lisa Chatfield and production company Southern Light Films would enhance the costume items from the production that were already part of the museum’s collection.

“It’s brilliant that Hokitika Museum will have these items for display. A lot of visitors are aware of the history of the area through watching The Luminaries on TV and it will be exciting for them to see the costumes and props in person.”

The costumes worn by actor Eve Hewson, who played Anna, will be donated to Hokitika Museum.
