Details

Tours at 1.30pm and 3.00pm - Please specify which tour you would like in the booking link A costumed event to celebrate the 105th Anniversary of the Representation of the People Act being passed in June 1918 in which some women were given the vote. It is 1911 and members of the household debate the issues involved in the various campaigns for Votes for Women. Should women be treated equally to men or is their place in the home – or indeed the kitchen? Is increased militancy the way forward? Everybody has an opinion on this matter. You are invited to listen in to their lively “conversations.” Take a tour with Edinburgh Living History and step back in time. Book on link or ring 0131 336 2060. 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.
