It’s Christmas 1910. There are conflicting views on the creeping commercialisation of Christmas and the English effect on the Protestant values of the Scottish people. However, all family and staff come together to enjoy the season.
Edinburgh Living History are our multi award- winning team, who interpret the history of the castle in a variety of entertaining ways in Edwardian costume - bringing alive the history of the house. Each performance is carefully devised by Edinburgh Living History to be as historically accurate as possible and include a touch of drama and a soupcon of humour. You will walk through the Castle virtually on a special tour watching the performance unfold.
A taster session will now be run on our Lauriston Castle Facebook page. No booking required, just join us on the day.
