      Shakespeare at the Castle - Macbeth

      Museums & Galleries Edinburgh welcome you to Lauriston Castle. Watch Shakespeare against the dramatic back-drop of Lauriston Castle and watch the sun set behind you. Five actors, with all manner of musical instruments, present an inventive take on Shakespeare’s infamous Scottish play, Macbeth. The Three Inch Fools are a five-strong troupe of actors with all manner of musical instruments, performing a highly imaginative and vibrantly musical take on Shakespeare's plays across the UK. The Fools perform Shakespeare in almost any kind of setting - castles, cathedrals, historic houses, gardens, churches, market places, village greens, an old fire station, a medieval crypt, a crowded pub and a garlic farm – all the world's a stage! This show is suitable for all the family. 7pm (bring your picnic at 6pm)   If you would like to come and see both shows performed by The Three Inch Fools you can get an extra special discount for only £28 for adults, £13 for under 18's and £70 for a family ticket (2 adults and 2 children).Under 10's are free, but please book a place! About Us: For more than 400 years, enchanting Lauriston Castle has overlooked the River Forth at Silverknowes, near Cramond. Set among 30 acres of woodland and beautiful gardens, Lauriston Castle is a special place to visit.   The Castle itself has a beautiful Edwardian interior, from which we take inspiration for many of our workshops.  Downstairs are the servants’ quarters, including the maids’ hall and the atmospheric old kitchen, where a warm welcome awaits you during the winter months.   Why not double up a day visiting the Castle grounds with a picnic, and historic Cramond is right on our doorstep so you can make a real day out visiting this part of Edinburgh.    Free car parking is available within the Castle grounds off Cramond Road South. Lauriston Castle is easy to reach and is close by car from the City Bypass.  It sits between Davidson’s Mains and Cramond. You can take numerous buses to Davidson’s Mains, or Silverknowes Terminus; both are around 10 minutes’ walk from Lauriston Castle.  See for details of local services.     Booking Pre-booking and advance payment are essential for all events.  Online: To book contact: By phone: Telephone the City Art Centre on 0131 529 3993 (Monday to Sunday 10am - 5pm) In person : The City Art centre, 2 Market Street, Edinburgh EH1 1DE (Monday to Sunday 10am - 5pm) For further information (non-booking information) about any event, contact Margaret Findlay, Learning and Programmes Manager, on 0131 529 3963, or email
