If you've ever wanted to get your hands on a piece of London pantomime history, want to kit your kids out in a set of animal costumes, or just have a thing for dressing up like a dame on Tuesdays — your luck's in.

Hackney Empire is selling off renowned costumes by designer Lotte Collett, from the last decade of its acclaimed panto productions, the most recent of which was Mother Goose.

The sale takes place at Empire 2 (Behind Hackney Empire on Wilton Way) on 28 February and 1 March, 10am-4pm. Pantomime professionals can book appointments to see full sets from Mother Goose, Aladdin and Dick Whittington, plus other costumes, including full ensemble and children’s outfits. For more information, look behind you see the website.
