Costume Hire

With a collection of over 10,000 costumes, Sheffield Theatres’ Costume Hire service has something for everyone.

Offering access to costumes from a vast number of historical and contemporary periods, all costumes available for hire were made at the Crucible for use in productions on our stages. Well made and well maintained by our highly skilled wardrobe team, customers can be reassured that all available costumes are produced to the highest quality.

A dedicated hire assistant is on hand to discuss your requirements, offering support with all your costume needs.

The Costume Hire Service is ideal for both professional and amateur theatre groups, schools, universities, film production companies, photographers and stylists and can offer competitive rates to suit all budgets.

Access to the Costume Hire Service is by appointment only, and is open on Mondays, Saturdays and Thursday evenings.

For costume enquiries, or to make an appointment, please contact Angela Platts on 0114 249 5999 or email

Donations of vintage clothing from all periods are gratefully received. Clothing must be in good, usable condition. Donations can be left at the Crucible Theatre Stage Door for the attention of Angela Platts.
