th to 27th August at the Edinburgh Castle The Royal Edinburgh Military tattoo is in full swing! A tremendous outdoor spectacle, the Tattoo presents a host of international performers, military and civilian, set against the incredible backdrop of Edinburgh Castle.
Performers from four continents, including participants from as far as South America, together with the finest modern production technology, are set to provide an abundance of matchless entertainment at the 2011 Tatto. The action-packed programme features exciting contributions from the Massed Bands of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines, Highland Dancing, the Band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland and the stirring music of the world-famous Massed Pipes and Drums.
Adding to the international flavour are a Dutch Mounted Bicycle Band.
A huge audience favourite is once again expected to be the traditional and poignant close of the evening’s proceedings when the Lone Piper high on the Castle ramparts plays a haunting lament, before the colourful, cosmopolitan cast march off the Esplanade to the strains of famous pipe melody, The Black Bear.
