The 2014 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo
The 2014 Tattoo will celebrate Our Home, Friends and Family.
As Scotland prepares to welcome the world as part of the exciting year of Homecoming, hundreds of Commonwealth participants are set to play a part in next the 2014 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
Music, dance and precision display with the Massed Pipes and Drums, the Bands of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines, cultural troupes, singers and the poignant refrain of the Lone Piper against the stunning backdrop of Edinburgh Castle.
This will be the 64th extravaganza to be staged at the Scottish capital's ancient Castle - a spectacular and inspiring backcloth for this remarkable and internationally acclaimed event. With innovative production, heart-stopping sound, imaginative graphics, state-of-the-art lighting and specially commissioned fireworks, the 90-minute show is set to captivate a large cosmopolitan audience. The line-up of nearly 1000 performers includes hundreds of musicians, pipers, drummers, singers and dancers, as well as one of the World's most sensational percussion groups: Switzerland's Top Secret Drum Corps.
As ever, the emphasis is on sheer scale, colourful tradition, music, movement and spectacle with the show looking forward to delighting an international crowd with a rich story and setting.
As always, the exciting programme will include the unforgettable music of the Massed Pipes and Drums and the Massed Military Bands. Among the many bands taking part will be The Royal Regiment of Scotland and a stunning Combined Band drawn from The Royal Navy, Army and the Royal Air Force.
The show will be brought to an emotional and poignant close each evening as the Lone Piper, high on the castle ramparts, plays a haunting lament.
