A fantastic collection of over 5,000 costumes and accessories for hire to schools and colleges, drama groups, companies and the general public.

Our stock includes adult’s and children’s wear, hats, shoes, wigs, masks and weapons, representing all eras from the stone age to the space age.

We offer a friendly and personal service to guide you to the selection you require.

Our costumes are to hire by the week and a second week is half the price of a first.

We offer a 10% discount for hiring ten or more costumes. Our charges are per item with prices starting at £2.55. We have a maximum outfit charge of £45 per person for a full costume. A deposit is required from all hirers when costumes are reserved or taken; this is a holding deposit and is in addition to the hire charge.
