Quality costume hire for musical theatre, Pantomime, Fancy Dress and Corporate Events across the UK

Established in 2001, Molly Limpet's Theatrical Emporium Ltd has built a collection of approximately 30,000 garments, stored between our high street shop and our private Studio in Sheffield, meaning we have two very distinct sides to our business:

Theatre, Pantomime, Film and TV

A small but busy team design, produce and co-ordinate costumes for our clients all across the UK and Ireland and, more recently, overseas. Clients are welcome to visit us by appointment to discuss their project, view existing stock, or discuss the manufacture of new garments. A 'rail' is then pulled for each client and sent ready for the production.

The main body of our work is seen on stages across the country, and we also provide for film and TV companies for projects screened all over the world. Take a look around the many galleries seen on this site, or feel free to visit all our social media sites to see more of what happens behind-the-scenes of a busy costumier and be the first to see new garments as they're made. This is also where many of our breaking announcements are made regarding new projects!

Fancy Dress, Corporate & Private Events

Our shop is open to the public. Thousands of handmade costumes in all sizes are stored across three floors and are always ready to be tried on. We also hire online, meaning we can cater for customers across the UK; costumes are sent and collected via courier if you're unable to collect in person.

Again, follow us on social media (see links at the bottom of the page) to view great new costumes produced on a daily basis.
