Tattoo 2011: Lion Rampant projected onto Edinburgh Castle

A limited number of half-price tickets for this year’s Edinburgh Military Tattoo preview performance on Thursday 6th August will go on sale from the Tattoo Box Office this Monday (27th July) at 10am, in person, online, or by telephone.

Ticket prices for this special performance range from £12.50 to £31.50. Normal tickets prices for the 2015 Tattoo performances, taking place from 7-29 August, cost between £25 to £65.

The preview show is when press photographers and cameras get their footage of this year's 90-minute show.

“We are very much looking forward to this year’s Tattoo. We have some astonishing acts coming in from all over the world," said Tattoo Chief Executive & Producer, Brigadier David Allfrey. "It is a golden opportunity to see the whole performance before anyone else at half the price!”

This year’s production, the 66th Tattoo, celebrates ‘East Meets West’ with acts coming from the United States, China, India and Europe.

2015 also sees the return of Switzerland’s impressive Top Secret Drum Corps (above) as well as, of course, perennial Scottish favourites such as 250 pipers and drummers who are set to grace the Esplanade of Edinburgh Castle.
