The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo was originally born out of the Second World War with the aims of raising morale after dark times, entertaining and bringing people together and the Charity will continue to uphold these original values.

It will make its highly anticipated return with this year’s Show, Voices. Staged on the iconic Edinburgh Castle Esplanade between 5-27 August, the Show will be a celebration of expression, giving a stage to performers and acts from around the globe to share their voice.

This year’s Show is the first from the Tattoo’s new Creative Director, Michael Braithwaite, who along with new partners in production design, lighting, audio, costume, and projection will showcase his vision for Tattoo this year. Voices draws inspiration from people across the globe who, despite physical separation, continue to connect and share their voices creatively through spoken word, song, music, and dance – languages common to all.

Over 800 performers from across the globe will take part in this year’s Tattoo, bringing with them incredible music, dance, and performance talents.
