Welcome to Northern & UK  Costume Hire, one of the largest theatrical costumiers in the country with over 30 years experience.



Despite the current situation, our office is open on a reduced hours basis to answer your queries and deal with emails.  We are taking bookings with provisional dates, and will work closely with you should these dates have to be re-scheduled due to the current uncertainty around the reopening of theatres and other venues.


Do not hesitate to contact us, and we will be pleased to assist you in any way we can.


In the meantime, stay safe and healthy.
