The Three Inch Fools are an innovative touring theatre company acclaimed for their fast-paced and musically driven approach to theatre.

They have built a reputation for staging bold and vibrant productions – a fast- paced, musically-driven style, using all sorts of instruments, plenty of multi-roling and many a quick costume change along the way.

Border Telegraph:

And throughout the summer there’s a Mythical Monster Hunt for young visitors.

John Ker, 3rd Duke of Roxburghe lived in Floors Castle until his death in 1804, over 220 years ago. Duke John was a great collector of many things, but his favourite thing to collect, his obsession, was books.

He had books on History, politics, and geography. He had books of poetry and stories from all around the world.

His book collection filled entire rooms in the castle, and he had over ten thousand different books that he had collected throughout his life.

In the years following the duke’s death, most of the library was sold, but there was one book, a very special book the Liber monstrorum magnus or ‘The Great Book of Monsters’, that was never accounted for.

This book was very old indeed, and very valuable, and contained ancient knowledge on how to defeat and imprison many dangerous and terrible monsters.

Recently, around the Gardens and Grounds of Floors Castle, many of these monsters have been spotted.

Somehow, they have escaped from the book, and staff need your help to find them, capture them, and imprison them once again safely within its pages…

The Mythical Monster Hunt will open on Friday July 7 and run seven days a week until August 31 from 10am until 5pm – last trail admission 4pm. No pre-booking necessary, online tickets on sale now!

On Saturday, August 5 the castle will form a spectacular backdrop to the music of Queen, Fleetwood Mac, Arctic Monkeys and Oasis when Roxburghe Rocks will be running throughout the day.

Visitors will have a chance to meet up with friends and family, enjoy the various food and drinks stalls and immerse yourselves in the sounds of the greatest performers of all time.

And on Friday August 18 the Handlebards will present a hilarious, high-octane production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
