The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo
Set against the dramatic backdrop of Edinburgh Castle, this 100-minute performance is a unique blend of music, ceremony, entertainment and theatre, featuring over 1,200 military and civilian performers every night. Acts will be announced ahead of the summer showcase but organisers have confirmed that fan favourites, the Massed Pipes and Drums – drawn from across the Armed Forces, Canada and Australia – and the Highland Dancers will both return to set the Esplanade alight. Inspired by Scotland’s Year of Young People, the Tattoo has unveiled 2018’s theme ‘The Sky’s the Limit’. In a year that will be led by The Royal Air Force (RAF), which is marking its 100-year anniversary during 2018, the show will celebrate the breaking of barriers and human potential being infinite.
