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 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 & drums.
An international flavour will be added by, amongst others, Dutch mounted cycling band and South African 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 Esplanade where the new facility will play host to a glittering array of talent, including one or two surprises.
