Shakespeare at the Castle: Hamlet

About Shakespeare at the Castle: Hamlet

Five actors, with all manner of musical instruments, present an inventive take on Shakespeare’s most infamous and iconic play, Hamlet.

The Three Inch Fools are a five-strong troupe of actors with all manner of musical instruments, travelling with set, props and costumes across the UK, performing a highly imaginative and vibrantly musical take on Shakespeare's plays. The Fools perform Shakespeare in almost any kind of setting - to date, they have performed at 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! You can’t miss this motley troupe at Lauriston Castle this summer.


Grounds open for picnics from 6pm

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Shakespeare at the Castle: Hamlet are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
