Harlequins Costumes was founded in 2020 by Jonathan Boxall-Southall after many years teaching music and drama to students aged 5 to 18 years of age and making costumes for his own musical productions.

Culminating his educational knowledge and sewing skills into full time business has enabled Jonathan and his team to support music and drama teachers across the UK with their school productions. Not only with costume hire but friendly advice on how to stage a musical. 

The Harlequins team believe in providing quality costumes that assist children to become their character whilst removing the complexities of costuming a show whilst juggling the demands of being a teacher with easy to use resources and friendly customer service that is constantly under review to ensure we can support performing arts departments effectively.

The team are on hand to answer any concerns you may have about staging your production and strive to deliver first class service every time.
