Where are we based?

While our bigger props and vehicles are located conveniently just outside London in Hertfordshire, we also have premises in Islington, North London. We're just a short walk from Caledonian Road tube station which has proven ideal for dropping off/picking up those smaller last-minute props.

Supporting Artistes & Walk-on's

Our primary service is supplying supporting artists for your period wartime production. We own all our costumes and all associated small props to bring each character alive. Our supporting roles over the years in film and television speak for themselves but we offer so much more. 


We can also provide period set dressing items from our constantly expanding inventory. From small items such as period newspapers up to larger props such as sentry boxes.

Period Vehicles

Our ever-expanding UK-wide inventory has grown to include both military and now civilian period vehicles from push bikes to trucks.

Production Coordination

Both David and Christoper are well accustomed to working in front of the camera but just as comfortable in production as associate producers and assistant directors/production coordinators roles. Wartime Productions works with clients such as English Heritage providing historical performances and coordinating WW2-themed events.
