The Dress Up Place is a not for profit incorporated organisation staffed entirely by volunteers. Our founding members have a long background in making costumes mainly for amateur theatrical productions. Over the years they have amassed large numbers of outfits and these formed the basis of our collection. Since then, we have added significantly in the more popular lines.

If you have dress up costumes or clothes from earlier years cluttering up your wardrobe, we would be happy to receive them as donations.  Any which we are unable to use, we forward to drama and/or other community groups.


We are always looking for volunteers. Our volunteers cover a range of skill areas such as customer service, costume maintenance (washing, ironing, mending), computer skills, and dressmaking. You can set your own hours and work patterns (within reason), and some of our volunteers work at home.
