Military Tattoo

5-27 August 2022

This year the Tattoo will represent the collective power and connection of voice

At the Tattoo we pride ourselves on providing a stage for military and cultural acts around the globe to have their voices heard and we want to celebrate this more than ever in 2022. Throughout the pandemic it was our voices that kept us connected and it’s this that helps us to create connections wherever we go.
