There was a Soldier at Edinburgh Fringe Festival

  • Date

A production of There Was a Soldier comes to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival on the 16th August.

There Was a Soldier is a compelling tribute to the people of Edinburgh, the Lothians and beyond, during WW1, and to Bangour (Edinburgh’s War Hospital).

OpenCast tells a story of love, challenge and of course service. It dramatises the story of young men who enlisted with great enthusiasm to defend their country. The play includes songs, poetry and narration and features old World War One songs as well as current folk songs.

This will be a branded ‘Thank You’ event and we have Standard Bearers and Legion Scotland members taking part in the final part of each production. It’s a must see for any Legion supporter or any Fringe fanatics!

"I have personally seen this production 7 or 8 times and it is something I never grow tired of seeing!" (Stephen, Legion Scotland)
