Established in 1976 COSTUME HIRE by Vintage Years was soon serving the people of Leicester and surrounding districts in their needs for fancy dress.
It was quickly realised by the founder Mike Berman that there was a much greater need for proper high quality professional costumes to a much wider variety of clientele. These included amateur dramatic and musical societies and a growing number of businesses who wanted costumes and properties for advertising, training, promotional and other purposes.
Now many years later COSTUME HIRE by Vintage Years have become probably the most comprehensive suppliers of costumes and accessories in the Midlands.
