Surrey Arts Wardrobe hires costumes and small props to school, groups, professional companies and private individuals for everything from large scale theatre productions to fancy dress parties. The cost of your outfit depends very much on the items you choose, how much you accessorise and how long you wish to hire it for. 


The collection consists of thousands of items of clothing and accessories that can be combined in any way to create the costume you want.

We are not your average fancy dress shop - think of us more as a giant dressing up box! The information in this section will give you more of an idea of what to expect (and exactly why we don't have an online catalogue!)
