The Wardrobe is based at Rothwell Hall in Blackpool. The session was initially set up as a group to make the costumes for the productions put on by the Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde Drama groups. More recently it has moved on to creating clothes for its members.
Past achievements include the making of the costumes in the Ormerod drama production ‘Here and Now’ including made to measure costumes for the ‘Prisoner Scene’ (see the picture above for the result). To achieve this each actor attended The Wardrobe for a fitting to make sure the costumes were comfortable and any alterations needed could be pinned. The costumes were made out of donations of material from staff and the people we support.
The Wardrobe have been kindly supported by donations from local businesses including Blacks in Blackpool.
