Tattoo Reach for the Sky 975x400

Tickets for The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo have gone on sale for 2018, with August's show to be themed The Sky's the Limit.

As the Royal Air Force marks its 100th anniversary in 2018, the Tattoo will feature members of the RAF among the hundreds of others taking part in the always-spectacular performance.

They'll be joined by, among others, the Central Band of the Czech Republic and regular Tattoo favourites the Top Secret Drum Corps of Switzerland.

The show will also feature colourful performers from across the world, in celebration of Scotland's Year of Young People, and of course the incredible sight and sound of the Massed Pipes and Drums.
