Hampshire Wardrobe

Come and explore our costume store and discover one of Hampshire's best kept secrets!

We're bursting with over 6000 inspiring garments and accessories that can be mixed and matched to create truly unique costumes. Our collection ranges from original vintage garments to fancy dress characters, as well as high quality historical reproductions in a variety of sizes. With assistance from our expert and dedicated staff we can help you costume a play, dress up a child for a school history day, or find an amazing and bespoke outfit for a party.

To view the collection or to discuss your requirements with our expert staff please telephone 01962 826725 to make an appointment. You can reserve costumes for a future date or view, try and take-away all in one.

Our costumes are to hire by the week, with a second week at half the price of the first.

Outfit charges start at £20.00. Individual items can also be hired with a minimum spend of £10.00. We offer a 10% bulk hire discount on large orders, or an educational discount for schools and students.

A holding deposit of £50 is required for a single outfit, increasing to £25.00 per outfit for larger orders, capped at £150.00.
