Clans at the 2017 Tattoo
2017 is Scotland’s ‘Year of Heritage, History and Archaeology’, and The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo will be taking a vibrant and exciting journey through the theme ‘Splash of Tartan’, playing host to a stunning array of performers from all points of the compass.
The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo will celebrate the heritage, colour and diversity of Scotland’s global family both near and far to ignite a renewed interest in Scotland’s national fabric while encouraging people in communities across the world to explore their potential links with Scotland.
As part of the programme the Tattoo and the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs have also joined together to involve Scottish Clans and Families. Clan Chiefs have been invited to lead their clansmen to Edinburgh Castle, on their own special designated evenings, and to take part in the opening ceremony of the Tattoo which runs between 4–26 August 2017.
In addition, everyone who attends the Tattoo - whether they have a clan connection or not - is invited to dress for the part; a rich mixture of tartan clothes, headgear and accoutrements of all forms. It is hoped Edinburgh will be awash with tartan through August. To book tickets or check availability click the “Buy Tickets” button below.
For a limited time only, visitors looking to book tickets to sit in their designated clans seated section can contact their Clan Chief directly. You can find out more details about your clan and the relevant chief at www.clanchiefs.org.uk or by emailing email@example.com. This promotion will end on 31st March.
