Elaine Dyson of Maskerade
Popular Middleton fancy dress business Maskerade is preparing to close its doors after 30 years of business and is hosting a special closing-down sale.
Its proprietor, Elaine Dyson, is ready to cease trading and move on after having a very enjoyable and successful business, providing fancy dress costumes for everyone from the local community and parties, to television, film and theatre.
Maskerade’s 10-foot polar bear mascot was included on CBeebies and also been required at events from London to the Orkney Isles, whilst its photographic studio and inhouse photographer was featured on Channel 4.
The Long Street business, which turned 30 on 4 September 2020, was bought by Elaine from her husband’s aunt and colleague, who initially started the business in 1975.
Elaine said: “A vibrant, creative and exciting business; it worked well with my photographic background. Maskerade has provided many other amazing costumes across all walks of life.
“Thank you to all of our valued customers for their wonderful support over the years. As a thank you, we can now offer a sale of all our costumes and accessories to the public.”
Please telephone Elaine on 07973 937 865 for information on hours of opening.
