Most UK orders are sent through Royal Mail packet post; this is a 3 day service from dispatch. Delivery speed where stated in days are based on working days (Monday-Friday) and exclude the day of posting, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays in the UK and overseas.

Please be aware that orders may be dispatched in more than one package and although they are dispatched at the same time they may arrive separately. The number of packages will be recorded on the address label. 


If your order has taken longer than the estimated delivery time we would advise customers to check with their local post office before contacting us.

If your order does not arrive within 7 days (UK) or 30 days (overseas and Europe), and in the unlikely event you have not been contacted, please contact us by emailing


We take payment when you place your order; your items will be dispatched once they arrive in stock. If your order contains both pre-order and in-stock items, we will dispatch the in-stock items immediately, and the pre-order items when they arrive – there is no additional shipping cost for this service.

EU Delivery Information

There may be local duty and/or taxes payable on goods delivered outside the UK. The Royal Shakespeare Company is not liable for paying these charges.

Customs charges and policies vary widely from country to country. Orders for international shipping will be subject to import duties and taxes levied on arrival in their destination country. You are liable for any additional charges for customs clearance and if a package is refused and has to be returned to us, you will also be liable for the cost of this. If you are unsure of charges and regulations which may apply to your order, please contact your local customs office for further information. Generally, customs forms for internal packages will list the value of the contents of your order by product type.

Can I give a separate delivery and billing address?

Yes, during the checkout process you will have the option to specify both a billing and delivery address.

Can I send individual items to different addresses?

Unfortunately it is not possible to specify more than one delivery address per order. Should you need to send items to more than one address, you will need to place separate orders.

Can I send an order as a gift?

Your goods can be dispatched to any address you choose.
