Superheroes fly into Coldean Primary School..or are they teachers?!

“Staff are always popping down to Gladrags to hire costumes and resource boxes for their classes. Vania and the team are amazing at sourcing just what you need and the children love the chance to dress-up in or handle the costumes and artefacts they find for us. The membership makes this all the more affordable for the school budget and is worth every penny!”

Nigel Watson, Deputy Head Coldean Primary School

It is well worth considering membership if you are likely to hire more than 25 costumes in the course of a year, as the hire will be even more cost effective. Membership is open to not-for-profit organisations, and schools and colleges as a means of receiving further benefits, which are:
