Chads is renowned for its award-winning wardrobe department. With one of the largest Costume Hire departments in the North West of England, it is staffed by members who give up their free time to advise and serve customers. Costumes can be hired by individuals and groups (subject to availability). It is also possible to pre-book costumes for specific events such as plays and fancy dress parties.
