Look the part, feel the part!

It's amazing how a character can be brought to life or how your production can be transformed to another period or era with the right wardrobe and props.

CDRC can provide affordable costume hire for children and adults covering historical, theatrical and biblical requirements. Our stock covers all eras from first century, through Roman, Anglo Saxon, Tudor, Victorian and 20th century. Our resources also include a selection of props. 

We can cater for large orders as we have done for schools, community organisations and churches.

Here is how to book.

As CDRC is a charity, we are fully dependent on the kindness and generosity of our clients, friends and supporting organisations. Our prices are way below the average price of commercial fancy dress hire and costume shops. For example a costume hired from the National Theatre could cost around £45. 


However, we wanted to make it accessible and feasible for public projects.


Boost your donation by 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate.

Gift Aid is reclaimed by the charity from the tax you pay for the current tax year.
