Ballet Central costumes found

Calendar Posted 15 May 2018

Central is please to share that the Ballet Central costumes that were stolen last week have been recovered.

Over 100 costumes were designed and created for the 2018 tour. Along with technical equipment, props and merchandise these were stolen last Tuesday 8 May from secure premises in Farringdon.

Following the media appeal last week a member of the public found the costumes in an open garage in Bromley-by-Bow, close to where the tour vehicle was last tracked, and called Ballet Central’s studios in Clerkenwell to report the news. With the support of the Police, the costumes were all recovered late last night and have been returned to the studios and Ballet Central’s dance students. Neither the tour vehicle nor any of the technical and production items have been found.

Ballet Central and Central School of Ballet are very grateful to the person who found the costumes, the Police and to all the media who helped to tell the story – without this help we would not be in the position of being able to return the costumes to the dancers who will be next performing on Friday 18th May in Bath.

A JustGiving fund was set up last week to help pay for stolen items. This currently stands at £11,540 and will be very helpful in helping to pay for the remaining stolen articles. This financial support is hugely appreciated alongside all the messages of support received.
