Off The Rails


Off The Rails (OTR) is a costume hire company based in Leeds offering sets of matching costumes or individual pieces for children from 3 and adults.

At the beginning…

OTR was created by Tom Ball when he started working with children and producing shows as part of Tom Ball Live Productions, in and around Leeds.  Tom realised that it is difficult to buy in full new sets of costumes for each an every show that he put on and it was costly for the participants of the shows to buy several costumes in new every time there was a show.  Because of this, he set out buying a few sets of new costumes for each show he put on, constantly adding to the catalogue but ensuring he had stock to be able to reuse costumes to keep costs down.  Now he would like to be able to offer the chance for other schools, whether junior, high or performing arts, the opportunity to hire  costumes for group numbers in matching sets.
