****** 2015 PACKAGES NOW AVAILABLE! ******
The 2015 Tattoo (7th-29th August 2015) will be the 65th extravaganza to be staged at the Scottish capital's ancient Castle - a spectacular and inspiring backcloth for this remarkable and internationally acclaimed event. With innovative production, heart-stopping sound, imaginative graphics, state-of-the-art lighting and specially commissioned fireworks, the 90-minute show is set to captivate a large cosmopolitan audience.
The line-up of nearly 1000 performers includes hundreds of musicians, pipers, drummers, singers and dancers.
With music, colour and spectacle from home and abroad, set against the incomparable backcloth of Edinburgh Castle, featuring the Massed Pipes and Drums, Military Bands, display teams and dancers from the four corners of the earth.
A huge audience favourite is once again expected to be the traditional and poignant close of the evening's proceedings when the Lone Piper high on the Castle ramparts plays a haunting lament, before the colourful, cosmopolitan cast march off the Esplanade to the strains of famous pipe melody, The Black Bear.
