Military Tattoo

Quite simply one of the most spectacular shows you will ever see, The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is a truly global spectacle.

Hosted each year on the castle esplanade it brings together musicians and performers from every part of the world for a fabulous display of international culture.

In 2018 it embraced Scotland’s Year of Young People with colourful performers joining them from across the globe.

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.
