The 2011 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo Tickets
Against the spectacular backdrop of Scotland's top tourist attraction, performers from four continents, including participants from as far afield as South Africa and South America, together with the finest modern production technology, are set to provide an abundance of matchless entertainment at next year's Tattoo (5-27 August) on the floodlit esplanade of Edinburgh Castle.
The action-packed programme will feature exciting contributions from the Massed Bands of Her Majesty's Royal Marines, Highland Dancing, the Band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland and the stirring music of the world-famous Massed Pipes and Drums.
An international flavour will be added by, amongst others, a Dutch Mounted Bicycle Band and South Africa's Navy Band.
A huge audience favourite is once again expected to be the traditional and poignant close of the evening's proceedings when the Lone Piper high on the Castle ramparts plays a haunting lament, before the colourful, cosmopolitan cast march off the Esplanade to the strains of famous pipe melody, The Black Bear.
Share the 2011 experience at the Tattoo's magnificent new multi-million pound arena on the Castle Esplande where the new facility will play host to a glittering array of talent, including one or two surprises.
Monday - Friday at 9.00pm, Saturday at 7.30pm and 10.30pm

Edinburgh Castle is an ancient stronghold which dominates the sky-line of the city of Edinburgh from its position atop Castle Rock. It is Scotland's second-most-visited tourist attraction. Human habitation of the site is dated back as far as the 9th century BC. As it stands today though, few of the castle's structures pre-date the Lang Siege of the 16th century, with the notable exception of St Margaret's Chapel, the oldest surviving building in Edinburgh, which dates from the early 12th century.
