In 2017 The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo embraces a colourful theme, Splash of Tartan, playing host to a stunning array of performers from all points of the compass. The Inn on the Mile highly recommending catching this spectacular show… we have a perfect location just 5 minutes walk from this majestic show!
Performers from over 48 countries have taken part in the Tattoo, and around 30 per cent of the 220,000 audience each year are from overseas. This year, in a Royal Navy lead year, The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo set sail with the Massed Bands of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines as they celebrate the history, heritage and colour of Scotland’s global family both near and far.
The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo has been televised in more than 40 countries. An annual television audience of 100 million watches the coverage worldwide.
The international flavour of the Tattoo has been deliberately developed as a key element in its capacity to entertain a huge, cosmopolitan audience. The Tattoo’s unique ability to bring together thousands of people for this annual celebration of music and entertainment continues and the public’s appetite for pomp and ceremony shows no sign of diminishing.
The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is hosted in Edinburgh Castles Esplanade. There you can take your seat ahead of enjoying the world famous Tattoo. Edinburgh Castle has dominated the skyline for centuries and is part of the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site. The Castle’s powerful stone walls have withstood many sieges and its sumptuous apartments were an important residence of Scottish Kings and Queens.
It’s a perfect excuse to start planning your Edinburgh experience and our Inn on the Mile has a perfect location in the heart of the Royal Mile if you fancy making a night or two of it this August!
