A treasure-trove of unique costumes worn by acting legends including David Tennant, Ian McKellen and Judi Dench are up for sale on Ebay to support the Royal Shakespeare Company’s new costume workshop.
The handpicked celebrity-worn garments follow less than a year after the company held a massive costume sale in September 2017 that saw literally thousands of costume fanatics queue for hours to grab some amazing pieces.
“All proceeds from the purchase of this item will support the Stitch In Time Campaign to support restoration and redevelopment of the RSC Costume Workshop,” said the RSC. “The redevelopment of the Costume Workshop will create the best facilities for costume-making, in a working environment fit for the 21st century. We will care for our heritage Grade II listed buildings, including the 1887 Scene Dock. The redevelopment will create new training and apprenticeships opportunities to secure the future of costume-making in Stratford-upon-Avon, and for the first time, visitors will be able to experience our world-class costume workshop for themselves on tours and online.“
The costumes each come with a certificate of authenticity signed by the Royal Shakespeare Company Head of Costume. Click the images to go to the listings – we make a small commission from Ebay’s fee at no extra cost to you if you make a winning bid.
