This week………

Whilst theatres remain dark, our costume store in Little Horwood is closed to the public. Now is a perfect time to plan your next show in detail, so do contact us for information on our superb costumes and discuss your plans.  we would love to hear from you.

We are already taking orders for October onwards and expect things to get very busy once public spaces are able to open again.

Never has entertainment been so necessary and we have produced a series of ‘isolation musicals’ for our own amusement and to showcase some costumes.

You can see them here;
