Tell me about the
Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo?
Staged every year as part of the world-famous Edinburgh Festival, the
Edinburgh Military Tattoo is a unique and memorable celebration of music, dance
and military pageantry. Set against the spectacular backdrop of the floodlit Edinburgh
Castle, almost a thousand musicians, pipers, drummers, singers and dancers
perform at The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo on the
Each year some of the most memorable highlights are the
stirring performances of the Massed Pipes and Drums and the Massed Military
Bands that emerge from the huge castle gates playing the stirring battle tunes
of Scotland's famed regiments.
Add to this the spectacular displays from the many overseas performers
who bring music, action and colour to the event in Edinburgh and you have a
winning blend that always keeps the Tattoo fresh, exciting and alive, even for
the many faithful fans who return here every year.
This unforgettable spectacle is brought to an emotional and poignant
close each evening as a lone piper, spotlit high on the castle ramparts, plays
a haunting lament. Fireworks, a mass chorus of Auld Lang Syne from the
audience and the roar of jets from a military flypast bring the curtain down on
a truly memorable night's entertainment.
