The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo

August 5 - August 27

Our story began over seven decades ago and had humble beginnings. It was inspired by a simple show called ‘Something About a Soldier’ performed in 1949 at the Ross Bandstand. The bandstand is still there, in Princes Street Gardens just below the Castle. Make sure to look out for it when you visit. Lieutenant Colonel George Malcolm was the first Producer of The Edinburgh Tattoo. He aimed to bring the Army’s contribution to the Edinburgh International Festival to life. From a modest event in a park to today’s global showcase at the Castle.
