Sounds unlikely? Well, not at the Royal Exchange.
The theatre's Open Day on 5 October saw Costume Hire staff catwalking to show off some of the fabulous costumes available to hire from our Swan Street venue.
Marie Antoinette, Milady de Winter and the Lady in Black were some of the other characters created for this highly successful event, where the theatre opens its doors to the public so that they can get a true idea of the many facets of the Royal Exchange's work.
Together with their fashion show, the Costume Hire department had costumes available for the public to try on - a real draw, especially for families with young children. It was great to see so many people coming along to explore and celebrate the city's 'fun palace', the Royal Exchange Theatre.
