The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo was created in 1950 by the Army in Scotland as their contribution to Edinburgh’s international festivals. Showcasing military and civilian acts from around the world, the Tattoo has evolved into a world-renowned commercial organisation within a charitable company that has donated over £11 million to good causes. It will always remain at its iconic home on the Esplanade of Edinburgh Castle, but now The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is taking its remarkable blend of music, ceremony, theatre and dance to new audiences, showcasing its unique brand across the globe. The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is produced in Australia by the Michael Cassel Group. Julie Brooks serves as Executive Producer.
“We will bring together everything you would expect of the Tattoo: a huge Castle, a massive international cast, world class lighting, sound and special effects, some of biggest music on the planet and of course a huge audience.” said Brigadier David Allfrey, Producer and CEO of The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, “And, to this inspiring mixture, we are adding new elements that are unique and special to Australia. We are all looking forward it and we hope you will be proud.”
Combining the hallmark elements of this world-famous spectacular with unique Australian and Southern Hemisphere involvement amongst the Scottish and British traditions, the show will feature a 1,400 strong International and Australian cast including signature Pipe Bands, Highland Dancers, Fiddlers and Precision Drill Teams, together with Australian Defence Force Bands.
The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo will showcase its inimitable mix of music, ceremony, military tradition, theatre, dance and Celtic folklore. The replica of Edinburgh Castle will span the entire width of ANZ Stadium providing the perfect setting for this event.
The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo heads to Sydney direct from its annual season on the Esplanade of Edinburgh Castle, Scotland, where it continues to boast sell-out performances, entertaining more than 220,000 people every summer.
