Support Scotland's heritage by giving now to the National Trust for Scotland


Drama events at Newhailes

Senior drama pupils from Holy Rood High School researched the history of Newhailes, including the people who had once lived or worked there.

Supported by Trust staff and Illuminate UK, the pupils wrote and produced a series of short plays within the house for public performance. The programme complemented the Curriculum for Excellence - and also brought locals to 'the big house behind the wall' who had never visited before.

Drama events at The Georgian House, Edinburgh

As part of the Advanced Higher Drama curriculum, pupils wrote, directed and acted in short plays – using the Georgian House as inspiration. During this project, each pupil undertook in-depth research and used a wide variety of source materials. The plays took place within the Georgian House over several evenings.
