The Tattoo team are busy planning for next year’s show, putting on 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.
