Then on 29 July, events take a darker turn with the troubled story of the rise of Richard III to power. As one would expect with Shakespeare, much drama ensues, powerfully played by the Festival Players. The outdoor performance begins at 19.00. Tickets cost £12.50 for adults and £7 for children.
Property Manager Rhiannon Naismith said:
“We are really pleased to be hosting outdoor theatre bring a picnic and a rug or a low seat and enjoy some of our best-known stories being performed under the stars at Newhailes.”
Tickets for these events can be booked online at www.nts.org.uk/events or by calling 0844 493 2125. Both performances are outdoors, so visitors are advised to dress warmly for all weather.
