Show FAQs

Our 2024 show Journeys takes place from 2–24 August 2024.

We welcome children and we do not impose an age limit. Tickets for children are charged at full price, however, children of three years and under can be admitted free of charge and without a ticket providing they remain seated on an adult’s lap. Please be aware that the Show contains some loud noises throughout the performance, including special effects, which some young children may find upsetting.

All shows will feature fireworks and other pyrotechnics as part of the performance. Further details about the 2024 show Journeys, will be released in due course.

The show content is the same on each performance during the 2024 show, Journeys. Monday to Friday the performance begins at 9:30pm and on Saturday there is a show at 6:15pm and 9:30pm. The early performance tends to be more popular with families and gives a great view of the performer’s costumes and formations whereas, as the sky is darker in the evenings, the projections are bolder for the 9:30pm displays.

The full line up for the 2024 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo has yet to be announced. We can confirm that audiences will enjoy the legendary sound of the Massed Pipes and Drums, musicians from UK Military Regiments and the lone piper, alongside outstanding talent from the Tattoo Dancers.
