Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo 2017
Next August will see another Clan Ewing event in Scotland, as we are privileged to have been invited to participate as a clan in the Edinburgh Royal Military Tattoo on Tuesday, August 6, 2017. The Tattoo is widely regarded as one of the greatest shows on Earth, and attracts sell-out crowds year after year. We will be sharing this evening with Clan MacPherson, under the leadership of their chief, Sir William Macpherson of Cluny and Blairgowrie.
Clansfolk will gather before the show in rooms on the Royal Mile (probably in the Lord Provost’s official rooms). The kilted and tartan-clad clans will then parade onto the Castle Esplanade, in view of the entire Tattoo audience; the chiefs or commanders then take a dram with the presiding Pipe Major, and thereafter, accompany the official Salute-taker throughout the evening. As well as a spectacular show the audience will be invited to come dressed in their Clan, Family or group tartan or just one that they like wearing.
If you’d like to take part, it makes sense to book well before the final deadline. Ticket prices are likely to range from £25 to £70 for standard seats, with more exclusive options also available. More information should be available at: www.edintattoo.co.uk.
