Wow! What a year we have had at Admiral Costumes with over 64 shows successfully costumed, a move to better premises and costumes featured on at least 3 TV shows.
We have loved costuming a large variety of shows for amateur productions, schools, colleges, opera societies and of course, individuals.
In 2017 we had an enormous variety of genres and styles to put together which has been great fun – we love doing something new!
The usual favourites were put together for The Sound of Music, Allo Allo, Bugsy Malone and Oliver, with new shows becoming more popular; Made in Dagenham and Wind inthe Willows.
More unusual productions were the delightful Belle Helene, dramatic Brief Encounter and Romeo and Juliet in a post- apocalyptic style.
Our excellent range of 40s wear was put to good use with the CBBC’s Marrying Mum and Dad series, where military and civilian wear was worn by a Scottish family tying the knot at a blitz party.
With our barbershop waistcoats appearing on Coronation Street and some of our 1800 century style hats on BBC proms for Oklahoma, it has been a very exciting time.
Our move to new premises in Little Horwood MK17, has given us the opportunity to improve our stock and revamp our website. A fun new promotional video can be seen on our website and on YouTube.
Thank you to everyone who has sent us some truly fabulous photos and flyers of their productions and events. We love to see them and share everyone’s success.
We are proud to have supported the Blue Cross charity for animals with some period outfits for a promotional calendar – the images are stunning and will raise much needed cash for this worthy cause.
The team here at Admiral Costumes wish all our friends and customers a brilliant 2018 and look forward to panto season, Peter Pan and Frankenstein!
