2020’s theme ‘Platinum’ will be marking the 70th anniversary of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. The show will commemorate the rich maritime heritage of the Royal Navy and tie into Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters.

As ever, one of the most memorable moments will come with the poignant refrain of the Lone Piper who plays against the stunning backdrop of Edinburgh Castle.
