MagicFest at the Fringe presents: The Secret Room at Lauriston Castle
Enter secluded Lauriston Castle and travel back in time to a world of clandestine laboratories, hidden passages and secret rooms... A sell out in 2018-2019, three mysterious magicians animate the castle’s intriguing past with stories, performances and illusions related to the history of Lauriston and her owners. A high court judge come surreptitious alchemist, a gambler who nearly lost everything, what other surprises does this wonderful castle conceal?
