War Horse - Edinburgh Festival Theatre


Our luxury coach departs The Sands Centre at 9am and travels straight to Edinburgh, to allow plenty of time for shopping and lunch before the matinee performance, returning back at The Sands Centre at approximately 8pm.

In the year that we commemorate the centenary of the end of the Great War, we're delighted to be able to offer a special theatre coach trip to see War Horse at Edinburgh Festival Theatre.

War Horse, which has been seen by over seven million people worldwide, completed its record-breaking eight year London run at the New London Theatre on 12 March 2016. It has won 25 awards including the Tony Award for Best Play on Broadway. Directed by Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris, Nick Stafford's adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's remarkable story of courage, loyalty and friendship, about a young boy called Albert and his horse Joey, set against the backdrop of the First World War is the most successful play in the National Theatre's history. It features ground-breaking puppetry work by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company, which brings breathing, galloping horses to life on stage.

War Horse received its world premiere on 9 October 2007 at the National Theatre, where it played for two seasons before opening at the New London Theatre in March 2009. Since then, War Horse has been seen in 97 cities in 10 countries, including productions on Broadway, in Toronto and Berlin, with touring productions in the UK and Ireland, North America, the Netherlands and Belgium. A Chinese-language production is currently running in Beijing
