The show will be a safe and unforgettable event that combines military precision, live music, breath-taking lighting and special effects and fantastic entertainment.

The 2021 seating plan has been considered to allow social distancing measures, with a reduced overall capacity and tickets available in sections of up to four seats together. Those who transferred their tickets from 2020 were first to select their seats prior to public sale.

The 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, committing to the 2021 event and giving fans of the Show near and far something to look forward to.

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. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
