THREADS is a programme of events celebrating the history of costume making in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Discover the stories, skills and materials that make up our costume heritage by joining us for a range of activities throughout summer and autumn 2021.

Watch live pop-up performances on the Bancroft Terrace, develop your skills with workshops and demonstrations, and come to Costume Day where we knit it all together for a day-long celebration of the history and craft of costume making in Shakespeare’s home town.

Whatever your age, come with us to create, celebrate and learn more about costume making then and now.




THREADS is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
