The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo tickets
Updated: 29 November 2013
The annual Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo returns to Edinburgh Castle in August 2014. The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is considered to be the highlight of the Edinburgh Festivals.
Taking place from the 1 to 23 August 2014, there will be daily performances excluding Sundays.
The Edinburgh Military Tattoo is performed against Edinburgh castle’s majestic backdrop and features exciting contributions by Her Majesty's Royal Marines, Highland Dancing, the Band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland and the world-famous Massed Pipes & Drums.
A big favourite of the Tattoo is the performance of the Lone Piper on top of the imposing walls of Edinburgh Castle.
The Lone Piper performs at the end of each Edinburgh Military Tattoo event and while the haunting notes of "The Black Bear" are ringing across the area the cast march off the Edinburgh Castle’s esplanade.
The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo sees fans travel from all over the world to Edinburgh Castle to witness the stunning displays.
The show itself echoes that global spirit as the Edinburgh Military Tattoo features performers from around the world. Over 46 countries have participated in the Tattoo throughout its 60+ years.
In 2010 the queen awarded the Tattoo with a Royal title to celebrate the 60 years that it has been in existence. Thus, it became the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
The event is always popular with tickets to last year’s Edinburgh Military Tattoo selling out.
All Edinburgh Military Tattoo performances will end with a fantastic fireworks display, subject to weather conditions.
Performances on the 11 – 15 August 2014 will be recorded by the BBC to be aired at a later date.
