From treasure to Bollywood – another fun week at Admiral

Admiral Costumes store was the final destination for the Newton Longville treasure hunt.  A series of clues led 6 teams around the village to collect seven letters of an anagram that had to be solved to reveal the location of the treasure.

Two teams were neck and neck and came in store to solve the final clue on a combination on lock on our treasure chest.

A Bollywood party in neighbouring Stewkely brought in customers in search of Indian sari’s, robes and pantaloons.  We even supplied a pith helmet and gun to shoot the lion!

Later in the week, a large collection of French revolution style costumes including 13 prostitutes, French police and ball dresses for the French ladies went out for a college production of Les Miserables.

United We Stand started their tour of the UK with a preview at Leighton Buzzard Library Theatre. Superb performances and great musical score ensures the success of this new piece which uses a selection of our 70’s every day wear.

1940’s events are still popular, with nurses, RAF uniforms and Land army girls proving a favourite choice for our customers.

We finished the week with a first costume fitting for Wind in the Willows and put together a Hagrid costume for a school visit to The Harry Potter studios in Leavesden.
