It’s the year 1916 and Mr and Mrs Reid are planning a major event to raise money to support the conduct of the war; but they are unsure what will be the most effective way to do this. Eavesdrop on their discussions and hear what they and the staff feel about how the conflict is progressing.  

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 on a special tour watching the performance unfold.
