The Edinburgh Tattoo is a spectacular like no other. A kaleidoscope of music, dance and entertainment. All set against the iconic backdrop of Edinburgh Castle. See your evening burst into life with a colourful blend of Scottish pipe and drum bands, highland dancers and performers from across the world.

Bigger, better and more technically thrilling than ever before. A unique mix of military tradition and global cultures. This really is an experience for the senses.

Under the theme Kaleidoscope, the 2019 Tattoo will capture the imaginations of audience goers through a series of performances bold with colour and light, comparable to the optical invention which was created by Scottish physicist Sir David Brewster in 1816.

The show will celebrate “glorious symmetries” through precision-led performances with the British Army at the fore, complemented by the Massed Pipes and Drums, Pipers Trail, the Tattoo Dance Company and Hjaltibonhoga (Shetland Fiddlers), which are all confirmed to participate.

Organisers will reveal the full cast line-up next year but are calling on avid fans to snap up their tickets for what is expected to be another sell-out year.

Your seat is waiting.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
