Since 1990 Bristol Costume Services has provided a vast selection of Period and Contemporary costumes and accessories for hire. We service the theatre, film and television industries, and have over 90,000 items in stock.
We offer competitve rates inclusive of cleaning costs. Please contact us for a personalised quote. For long-term TV and Film hires we offer flexible rates.
We also offer reduced rates for costumes to be used as props (i.e. those that form part of the set and are not worn).
Staff in our hire department have experience working in theatre and television and have an extensive knowledge of the history of costume as well as specific plays.
We can send costumes anywhere in the country by overnight Courier. Alternatively, customers are welcome to take costumes on the day or arrange for your own courier/pickup service at a time that best suits you.
For larger orders (up to 5 rails), we can organise the delivery of costumes on your behalf using our local service provider.
Alterations & Repairs Service
If you find a costume to hire that requires either alterations or repair, we are happy to make any required changes in-house provided costumes are picked out in advance.
We have a number of fitting rooms available and can accommodate groups if you wish to bring the actors/models to try on costumes before hiring.
Costume rails and hangers are also available for hire. Please contact us for a quote.
