Crystal’s Vardo is an educational play celebrating Gypsy Roma Traveller History and culture, written to raise awareness of Gypsy and Traveller issues. We have performed in prisons, colleges, schools, theatres and GRTH events. With 3 actors and 28 characters, costume is vital to delivering the play’s message effectively, also to enhance the quality of the production, and as a charity we are always on a tight budget. Thank goodness for Gladrags’ affordable prices and fantastic costumes! Suzanna King, writer, FFT

We offer costume hire at very low cost, and in order to keep the rate this affordable hirers are asked to clean/ iron all washable costumes before returning them to Gladrags. A £2 charge is made for any items that need dry-cleaning after use.
You can opt for Gladrags to take care of washing and ironing, a service we outsource and therefore charge £2 an item to cover costs. Costumes requiring steam-cleaning are dealt with by us, for which there is also a small additional charge.
