Sunday 23 December, 5pm


A special digital performance from Edinburgh Living History set at Christmas 1910

Mr Barton was the brother of Mrs Reid, last Edwardian owner of Lauriston Castle. He has just returned from a trip to London in December 1910. Mr Barton has invited an English friend, Mr Bertie Murrow, to Lauriston for the festive season. He wants his friend to enjoy the kind of Edwardian Christmas he would have enjoyed at home in London. He now has to convince Mr and Mrs Reid and also the staff of the merits of this type of Christmas day as opposed to the traditional Scottish Christmas.

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. 

This will stream on our Lauriston Castle Facebook page. No booking required, just join us on the day.
