Edinburgh Military Tattoo (The)
The Tattoo is one of the world's finest military displays. First performed in 1950, it is a splendid mix of pomp, pageantry, music, ceremony, entertainment and drama, all set against the stunning backdrop of Edinburgh Castle during the festival. Although the central appeal still remains the stirring sight and sound of the massed pipes and drums of the Scottish regiments, the event has an international flavour with performers invited from all over the world. Tickets range from GBP9-GBP25, depending upon seating.
This was by far the most enjoyable concert/performance that I have ever been to. The music literally made the hair stand up on the back of my neck!!! Definetly will return in the future!!! They even mentioned our Pipe Band from Templemore!!!!
Each year I went to Edinburgh, everyone raved about the Tattoo. The stands fill the courtyard of the Edinburgh Castle. A pity, since that is the only time thousands of tourists come to see the castle and the whole courtyard is filled with scaffolding and stands and no access to outer views from there.
I finally went, expecting more of a show which featured Scottish bands. There are some bagpipes, but most of the show was devoted to visiting groups from other countries. The only seats available were way back in the stands. If you like marching bands, this will be a treat. If you are so so about marching bands then I would suggest to go to one of the hundreds of other events which are part of the Fringe or International Festivals.
