A word from the Boss!

York's Premier Fancy Dress Shop
york shop front
Opened in 1999, York's only 3 storey fancy dress shop within the City Walls.
It's THE place to buy or hire fancy dress costumes.
75 Goodramgate
Telephone: 01904 655777

We have an amazing 3 floor shop in the city centre of YORK, we urge people to call in and visit. We have a wide range of choice: Costumes for children and adults, wigs, hats, masks, masquerade masks, make up and costume accessories, we have everything for all budgets. We also have a costume hire department on the third floor!

We hear from so many customers who have been let down or disappointed by outfits ordered from the Internet, especially from overseas websites.
We select lines on both quality and value for money. An added bonus from buying from a store, is that you can actually try on costumes before you buy them. Why wait for weeks for a costume to turn up, only for it to be the wrong size or worse - look completely different to what you were expecting!

We do get requests daily from charities, as fundraising events often involve fancy dress. Rather than pick and choose between the good causes we offer a standard Charity discount to EVERY charity, please send us a message with your requirements.

Opening Hours:
Mon-Fri 10.00- 17.30
Sunday Closed
