Nicolson Street excitement

The crowd control barriers were out yesterday outside the Festival Theatre for the UK premiere of the new Macbeth film with Michael Fassbender in attendance.  More here.

And later today the Royal College of Surgeons' Museums in Nicolson Street are due to be formally reopened after upgrade.  From the College website:

"Surgeons’ Hall Museums will be officially opened by the College’s Patron, His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, on Monday 28th September. The public will be able to visit from today, 24th September. New exhibits include a reproduction of a 17th century dissection theatre where visitors will be able to experience a dissection of a human body just as medical students did 300 years ago: unlike 300 years ago, however, the dissection will be carried out using the latest digital technology. Another exhibit is a full-scale Vitruvian man made from medical prosthetics. Visitors will also be able to try their hand at a variety of surgical techniques and learn more about surgical specialties and operations."
