Wakefield Gilbert & Sullivan Society

Costume Hire

Taking the opportunity presented by Homburgs’ Leeds (theatrical costumiers) closing down sale, Wakefield Gilbert and Sullivan Society acquired over 300 costumes specifically for G&S productions.

The Mikado

Wakefield G&S Society production of The Mikado, 2009

We have over 150 costumes for Mikado which allows the chorus and Principals’ costumes to be chosen to compliment the production and setting. These are all in extremely good condition and we have supplemented the outfits with ladies’ and gentlemen’s fans, ladies’ wigs, gentlemen’s hats….. and even authentic Japanese shoes.

Our costumes were complimented in the NODA show report for Horsham Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society’s production of The Mikado in April 2012. They were described as “stunning period costumes” which helped create “a delightful opening scene”.

The Gondoliers

We have Act 1 chorus costumes for Gondoliers including straw hats and ladies’ head-dresses.

The Pirates of Penzance

A recent addition to our stock are Policemen’s costumes including truncheons and hats.

Costume Hire

We will be pleased to consider any requests to hire the costumes, props and accessories, so if you’re interested please contact Jane on the secretary. Hire charges are around £18 (we do not charge VAT), but please contact us for the current price list and to discuss your requirements as the more of our stock you require the better bulk deal we can agree. We can also arrange transport or postage if necessary.

Recently we have hired costumes and accessories to:

“The hire was extremely smooth and I can’t fault the service – it was so fantastic to have the costumes delivered and collected, and the labelling system on the costumes was easy to understand”.
