The Courtyard Costume Store is Open!
On Friday 22 July, The Courtyard Costume Store was officially opened by Deputy Mayor Cllr Sharon Michael with around fifty representatives from local theatres and schools attending the launch event throughout the day.
After Cllr Michael had cut the ribbon and declared the store open, guests were invited to try on pieces and learn about the history of different items. There was then an opportunity for everyone to explore the store and enjoy refreshments in the glorious sunshine.
Last year The Courtyard took on the costumes from the former Hereford County Costume Store and combined them with their own existing stock. This has created a fantastic resource of around eight thousand costumes and accessories available to schools, community groups and local theatres to hire for performances.
Offering competitive rates with further discounts for Herefordshire based amateur groups, schools and colleges, The Courtyard Costume Store aims to ensure that these costumes remain available to performing arts groups within Hereford and the wider community in the years to come.
