Preston Park Museum in Stockton has bagged its own piece of the 2012 Olympics - in the form of eighty Victorian costumes from the Olympic opening ceremony.
LOCOG, the organising committee for the Olympics, gave local authorities around the country the chance to get hold of some of the pieces used in the show.
Authorities could then apply for the costumes, and Stockton was one of the lucky chosen few.
The staff at Preston park believe that the costumes will add a greater sense of realism to its popular outdoor Victorian street.
