We have teamed up with the Edinburgh Dungeon to offer two lucky readers the chance to win a family ticket to see their new show: Deadly Diseases.
Edinburgh’s history is rife with diseases such as cholera, typhus and the plague. Now, thanks to The Edinburgh Dungeon, they’re all about to be
unleashed again. Who will survive?
Launching on March 18, 2016, the new show takes guests back to the disease-ravaged streets of the capital where they will come face-to-face with its
victims and their ghastly ailments.
Delivered with the mix of cheeky humour and gripping storytelling for which the award-winning attraction is known, visitors will learn about thecurious cures concocted by the city’s bloodstained barber surgeons – the men treating those unable to afford a doctor. Those lucky enough to escape will then venture down a plague-ridden
street of Old Edinburgh, the Street of Sorrows, and meet the Foul Clenger – the plague cleaner.
But the scary fun doesn’t stop there. At the end of the tour, visitors find themselves on Market Street – the Dungeon’s new immersive shop. Below
them are rat-strewn cobbles and above are hanging awnings as well as swinging rows of tankards, bottles and cages. Meanwhile stalls
spilling over with wares combine to offer a new retail experience.
Deadly Diseases is on from March 18 2016 for a limited time only. For more information or to book tickets please visit www.thedungeons.com/edinburgh or
