Thank you for expressing an interest in viewing costumes for sale at the venue
All the costumes FOR SALE have been stored on site some for many years – many will require washing prior to use for this reason. Some may have minor repairs. ALL COSTUMES ARE SOLD AS SEEN

We are closing requests to apply to buy costumes on Sunday 9th August.
Everyone that applies will be asked for unavailable dates to attend the venue- we are aware many of you will be running summer schools and do not want you to miss out. You will need to joing the private FB group as all correspondence will be via that page
Once we have established the dates people are unavailable – we will do our best to organise the sales days to suit everyone and release the dates and times.
Every prospective buyer will be issued with a number - when the dates are confirmed we will then do a live draw on the Private group FACEBOOK page to determine the order you can come to the theatre. We do not wish to be seen to be favouring anyone and want everyone to have equal opportunity.
It is likely that many of you may require the same costumes, so to make it fair, the draw will establish who gets into see them first.
Because of the rulings relative to social distancing and your safety, we are only going to allow 4 prospective buyers on site at any one time. There will be 2 members of the team in the auditorium and another team member in the box office.
EVERY PROSPECTIVE BUYER MUST WEAR A MASK & use the hand sanitiser on site when entering and exiting the auditorium – Also if you intend to come with another person, you MUST let us know, there will be 2 of you.
We do have toilet facilities but only one person can enter the toilets at any time when on site- so please ensure you ask one of the staff to use the facility.
Each group of four will be allocated a time slot of 1 hour to look and make their purchases.
We will ask you always keep socially distanced 1.5 metres from the staff and the other buyers on site.
There is a full list of costumes for sale – you can have that emailed to you if you wish. Please add a comment on the private group page or send a message via our Facebook page to Mat Pro if you would like one. OR Email: [email protected] with COSTUME LIST in the subject bar.
We are not taking reservations on costumes and we will not split sets, so please do not ask. In a couple of instances we will consider splitting a set and in these instances- it is on the sales list or the items are listed separately and there is a combined set price also on there.
The staff will be wearing gloves to handle the costumes during the sale, so you will be asked not to touch the costumes unless you have decided to purchase. For this reason, you may be asked to wait a while as we will have 1 staff member attending to two buyers
Many costumes do not have sizes on them, but tape measures will be on site so we can measure for you.
Please bring your own bags as we are not providing bags for your purchases. There will be some hangers on site if you wish to take advantage of them- FREE when a purchase is made.
ALL payments will need to be made by card. The PDQ machine is in the box office and we will only allow 2 persons in the theatre foyer at any one time when processing payments. Social distancing must be adhered too.
Between each buying session the theatres front door will be locked, whilst the staff clean the surfaces and toilet area. Staff will change gloves and masks between each buying session.
Please be aware you will be asked to wait outside whilst the cleaning is in progress and only asked to enter the theatre foyer when you can go through directly into the auditorium. If you are waiting outside again, please be observant of social distancing.
AFTER THE LIVE DRAW and all the time slots are allocated EVERYONE will get a confirmation of their time slot. If for any reason you cannot attend on the day, please do call us – you will be given the number to call with your time slot confirmation.
PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THE BUILDING if you are have started to cough, have a temperature, have loss of taste or smell – you can send someone to shop on your behalf if you cannot make it.
You will be asked to confirm your telephone number on arrival so we can adhere to the rulings on track and trace.
