A note on costumed interpretation: We have an extensive wardrobe of historically appropriate costumes from Neolithic to early Twentieth Century and are continually extending and improving on this. Many of our workshops and interactive presentations can be tailored to reflect a specific dateline, but we may need a little extra preparation time if adjusting a session to a new focus to ensure accuracy.

TV and Film:
Sally & Gareth have many years experience as extras on historical film productions. As well as providing experienced, well equipped extras, we are also able to offer help with research and specialist resources.

Whether you need accurately costumed extras from the Iron Age to the late Medieval periods, or perhaps an expert in early cosmetics or historic cooking to provide a 'talking head' or 'expert' appearance; we can help. We generally cost the same as any other freelance specialist but come with a whole host of extra skills and abilities that we will use to help realise your vision for your production.

Props and Costume:
We have promptly and cheerfully made and supplied well researched, high quality items to Film, TV, Theatre, Heritage and Museum professionals around the world. Please get in touch if we can help with any items or projects.
