Military Tattoo

4-26 August 2023

The 2023 Show, Stories, is set to be a bestseller that will take you on a musical journey.

The Royal Air Force has been confirmed as the lead service. As always the Massed Pipes and Drums will be an essential component (expect The Royal Regiment of Scotland and the Bands of His Majesty's Royal Marines), along with the Tattoo Pipes and Drums and Tattoo Dancers. As well as a major home contingent, Stories will continue to celebrate the history and heritage of Scotland's global family over the course of the 100-minute programme, but will incorporate its new ethos of greater innovation and creativity that it calls "Performance in a New Light".
