We have a vast array in child and teenage sizes too, starting with pre-schoolers! We can cater for many a popular musical or school play, and when we’re not busy with Christmas and End-of-Year shows, there’s always the Shakespeare in Schools Festival and the Let’s Dance Schools’ Celebration to keep us on our toes.

Complementing this provision, our aim at Gladrags is to provide costume as an affordable and enhancing learning tool, pertinent to school subjects, activities, and key learning objectives. Worn by both teachers and pupils our costumes have enriched many a classroom topic, project, presentation or open day.
See our ‘Shared Ideas‘ page to find out how other teachers have used our resources.
We offer historical costume, vintage garments and cultural clothing to suit most eras and countries, plus plenty more from animals to aliens, princesses to clowns. Perfect for a Stunning Start, we can kit out a range of key historical figures, from Cleopatra and Florence Nightingale to Henry VIII and Thomas Becket … and The Bard goes without saying!
Used imaginatively, our costumes and resource boxes offer a fresh and interactive approach to cross-curricula learning at KS1 / KS2 / KS3 levels. Common requests from schools include: Early Britons, Egyptians, Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, Tudors, Victorians & Evacuees, WW1 and WW2, Countries, Cultures, Circus, Fairytales, Superheroes and Space!
Schools benefit from our subsidised rates, £3 an outfit for members, £6 for non-members – see Costume Hire Prices for further details.
