The Wardrobe

South London Theatre Wardrobe has tens of thousands of items of clothing and costumes. Our collection spans the centuries and the cultures, from Greek tunics to medieval tabards and Elizabethan doublet and hose, from Victorian dresses to Edwardian blazers and late twentieth century fashion - taking in uniforms and armour, period underwear and pantomime dames along the way!

We provide costumes for SLT productions and hire costumes to many other amateur, fringe and professional companies, theatrical and operatic, as well as schools and individual performers. Our costumes have appeared on films and in productions across London, at the Edinburgh Festival and all over the world.
