Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo

Tickets for the 2021 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo have just gone on sale. The dates are 6-28th August 2021. The team at the Tattoo are planning for a safe and unforgettable event that combines military precision, live music, breath-taking lighting and special effects and fantastic entertainment. The 2021 seating plan has been considered to allow social distancing measures, with a reduced overall capacity and tickets available in sections of up to four seats together. Those who transferred their tickets from 2020 were first to select their seats prior to public sale.

Michael Braithwaite, the newly appointed Creative Director stated that: ‘We were originally born out of the Second World War with the aims of raising morale after dark times, entertaining and bringing people together and will continue to uphold these original values, committing to next year’s event and giving fans of the Show near and far something to look forward to. Tickets can be purchased online or via telephone on +44 (0)131 225 1188.
