“Complete shows. Completely simple.”

Your production deserves the very best costumes, and luckily for you, you need look no further. With over 25,000 costumes and 3000 pairs of  shoes & boots, we’re sure you to have what you need. We include free footwear with all costumes hired if applicable to the costume.

Thespis Costumiers is an award-winning family-run business nestled in the quiet heartland of East Anglia, whose costumes have been involved in numerous award-winning productions across Europe; from The Royal Windsor Pageant, 5-star Edinburgh Fringe shows, to countless regional theatres of all shapes and sizes across the UK, to Ireland, Iceland, and beyond!

We proudly offer 5-star customer service as standard with our 5-star costumes, so there really is nowhere else to look. We costume international shows within Europe & EEA countries. But fear not our North American friends, soon Thespis will be coming to your shores!

We have no published price list as our shows are tailored to your demands. Don’t let that put you off, our professional service team always aims to accommodate.

....Within reason of course!
