Dalkeith Country Park set to welcome Fringe ‘Sea Hames’ performances

1st August, 2017

Dalkeith Country Park will serve as the spectacular backdrop for a Fringe performance this summer.

For the first time, the Park has become a registered Fringe venue and will welcome acclaimed theatrical dance company Oceanallover for performances on 25 and 26 August.

Tickets for ‘Sea Hames’, Oceanallover’s latest show, take place at 2.30pm and is a free event.

The show is inspired by the Festival of the Horse and Boys’ Ploughing Match and explores the mythology and iconography of the horse, plough, sea and land.

Julie Merrilees, Visitor Services Manager at Dalkeith Country Park, said: “Becoming a Fringe venue is very exciting and we are thrilled to be part of one of Edinburgh’s most iconic festivals. We are helping to take the Fringe from the hustle and bustle of the city to the Midlothian countryside to provide a unique experience.

“Dalkeith Country Park’s idyllic setting will serve as a superb backdrop to Oceanallover’s memorable performances.”

Oceanallover, based in South West Scotland, has created many stimulating outdoor performances for a wide number of locations from urban sites to rural settings.

Spots for the free performances on 25 and 26 August can be booked via https://tickets.edfringe.com/whats-on/sea-hames. Transport has been organised between Edinburgh city centre and Dalkeith, with a bus running from Dance Base in the Grassmarket at a cost of £6.50 per person.
