Chance to buy Norwich theatre costumes

It caused a flurry for frocks and a queue for costumes last winter - and now there is a second chance to own a piece of theatre history.

It caused a flurry for frocks and a queue for costumes last winter - and now there is a second chance to own a piece of theatre history.

Norwich Theatre Royal is selling off more of its surplus wardrobe stock on July 9 and 10 from 10am to 4pm in the venue's Adnams Bar.

Will Hill, the theatre's technical manager, said: 'We held the first sale last November because space in our costume store was at a bit of a premium. The response was incredible with the public queuing to get the best garments - and even the local and national media splashing out on clothing when they came to cover the sale.

'We are now holding a second one to clear even more space with a whole host of costumes from previous pantomimes and productions up for grabs.'

All the costumes have been professionally made for shows at the Theatre Royal over the years and will be available at knock-down prices.

As well as being perfect for amateur dramatic groups, they are also ideal for fancy-dress parties or for children to use for dressing up.
