About FunZone Fancy Dress & Dancewear


FunZone Fancy Dress & Dancewear is a family run business in the historic City of St. Albans – site of Roman Verulamium and the home of St. Alban, the first British Christian martyr.

We opened our doors to the public on 9th March 2007 with a very small stock of around 250 costumes, and a limited range of accessories and dancewear. Even though one of the partners has 18 years of experience running a costume manufacturing and wholesale business in the area we were still very inexperienced in running a retail shop and weren’t quite sure what we were letting ourselves in for – but we soon found out !

If you’re going to a party or planning one, attending a themed wedding, putting on a play or your children are demanding a costume for a school event or outing, whatever the reason, FunZone is the place to come. Our friendly, helpful and enthusiastic staff will assist you to select a great costume, from our huge’ To Hire’ range or from our pre-packaged selection to buy. They will also advise you how to accessorise with wigs, make-up, eyelashes, jewellery, prosthetics and loads of other items to complement and enhance your look.

Our staff like a challenge and are very capable of thinking ‘outside the box’ to come up with unusual, unique and even quirky costuming ideas so, never mind the ‘X-Factor’, you’ll have the ‘Wow-Factor’! (or possibly the ‘F-Factor’ – the ‘Fun-Factor’ of course!)

We are very fortunate to be situated so close to so many main routes – the M1, M25, A1 so our customers come from far and wide. As well as serving the local towns and villages such as Sandridge, Marshalswick, Park Street, Chiswell Green, Harpenden there is easy access for customers from further afield – Radlett, Hatfield, Dunstable, Stevenage, Welwyn, Potters Bar and Enfield to name just a few. We also have folk come from as far away as Birmingham, Dorset and Devon to hire our costumes and have a welcome cuppa !

If you are a dancer, dance enthusiast or have younger dancers to kit out, at FunZone we have a comprehensive range of shoes, dancewear, and accessories for all ages and sizes, all styles and disciplines of dance, with stock from the major suppliers – Bloch, Katz, Tappers & Pointers and IDS. We hold the regulation RAD and ISTD dancewear and shoes for all the various ballet, tap, modern, jazz, gymnastics and other dance classes in and around the area, and a wide selection of ghillies and dance pumps for Scottish Country Dancing.

We like to make sure our dance customers have the option and freedom of choice of styles, colours and above all competitive prices so they don’t have to feel limited to just what the dance teachers supply. If you require something a little more unusual we will always try our very best to source and order in special items for you.

So, enjoy looking though our website and then come on down and visit our shop.

We can’t wait to see you !
