Part of our Costumed Drama Programme. Delivered by our award-winning Edinburgh Living History Group - watch Edwardian history play out before your eyes.

Join us for The Festival of Museums. Edward VII has been dead nearly two weeks and today is the date for his funeral. How will the Reids and the staff at Lauriston be involved in this momentous occasion? What does the future hold with a new king on the throne and growing tension throughout the world?

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Festival of Museums: Death of the King are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
