Docklands to host Edinburgh Tattoo Image

The world-famous Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is coming to Docklands next year.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle and the producer of the tattoo, Brigadier David Allfrey, made the announcement last month at Etihad Stadium, where the show will be staged next February.

“If there was one world event that we do not currently have that I would like to attract, it is the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and I am pleased to today announce that it is coming to Melbourne,” the Lord Mayor said.

The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo was first performed in 1950 and is performed annually at Edinburgh Castle, attracting an annual live audience of 220,000 and 100 million television viewers around
the world.

According to Brigadier Allfrey, in more than six and a half decades, the event has only been staged internationally on three occasions. It was held in Wellington, New Zealand in 2000 and in Sydney in 2005 and 2010.

“Australian audiences have always embraced the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo in Edinburgh every August and comprise one of the largest international supporters of the event,” Brigadier Allfrey said.

“We are delighted to be returning, this time to Melbourne, with a brand new show with the best bands and performers from around the world.”

The Etihad Stadium event will feature a full-size replica of Edinburgh Castle, the massed pipes and drums of Scotland’s famous regiments and performers from around the world.

The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo will be held at Etihad Stadium on February 12 and 13 next year. Tickets went on sale last month.
