It is 1916 and conscription has been introduced. Throughout the country people have been thinking up ideas about how to assist the troops on the Western Front. Some of the more intriguing ideas involve conkers, eggs and thimbles! A member of the local fundraising committee has come to the castle to speak to everyone about how they can help with the War effort.

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. Why not make a day of it at Lauriston and have some lunch at Mimi’s café on site.
