As a charity we are committed to reaching groups and individuals who experience disadvantage, isolation and marginalisation. To this end we turn our skills and resources into transformative and educational tools delivering creative experiential activities within communities of need. Find out here about our resources for schoolseducational workshops, Storybox sessions, reminiscence provision, and the magical dress-up tent we provide to community events!

We pride ourselves in making the experience of choosing and using costumes an accessible, enjoyable and rewarding one for all. You are welcome to browse and get inspiration for your project, or take costumes away for fittings free of charge. We offer a range of additional provisions to help with design projects, including costume-making equipment, reference library and free recycled fabrics. Read More.

Our affordable costume services provide LEA schools and colleges, community groups, charities and low-budget projects with sliding scale prices start at £3 an outfit per week with membership, This means that you can benefit from the variety and professional quality of our costumes at a fraction of the average commercial cost.

Individuals can hire party outfits from us too, from £25 an outfit. We're not a fancy dress shop but if you're after a vintage or theatrical look, we can help you. Oue customers include professional film, TV and theatre companies and they also hire from us at this rate.

Through your support you help to subsidise the low rates we offer to our beneficiary groups, through educational outreach programs in Sussex, and continue to raise awareness and promote the benefits of a sustainable textile industry.

Together we enable community projects to thrive.

We look forward to seeing you at Gladrags soon.
