The Galoshins are one of the oldest Scottish folk plays still performed today. The play is about the struggle between winter and summer, and miraculous cures. The theatre workshop invites you to bring out your inner braggart, indulge your sense of fun or try your hand at sword fighting.

Led by: Neill Martin, senior lecturer in Scottish Ethnology (University of Edinburgh), Jos Collins, doctoral researcher of folk drama (Heriot-Watt University & University of Edinburgh) & Kerstin Pfeiffer, researcher of medieval drama (Heriot-Watt University)
