For those who don't mind the odd photographer or television camera crew getting in their line of sight there is a limited number of half-price tickets for the Thursday 31st July preview performance of this year’s Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
The half-price tickets will go on sale from the Tattoo Ticket Sales Office on Edinburgh’s Market Street at 10am on Monday 21st July 2014.
Tickets also will go on sale online at www.edintattoo.co.uk and by telephone (0131 225 1188) using a credit/debit card (a booking fee of £5.00 will be applied per transaction).
Ticket prices for this performance range from £12.50 to £30. Regular admission charges for the other entire 2014 Tattoo performances, scheduled to take place from 1-23 August, span between £25.00 to £62.00.
The 65th Tattoo will see contingents from Singapore, New Zealand, Malta and the Middle East as well as from across the United Kingdom over the course of the 90-minute show on the Castle Esplanade.
The theme, ‘Our Home, Friends and Family’ defines the 2014 production, which also features one the largest pipe bands to grace the Esplanade at Edinburgh Castle and 40 fiddlers from Shetland especially assembled for their Tattoo debut.
Tattoo Chief Executive & Producer, Brigadier David Allfrey, said: “The queue starts in Market Street early in the morning and this all adds to the excitement. For us, the release of tickets for the Preview Show is one of the major milestones in the year. This summer, in particular, we have an extraordinary Show and are very much looking forward to taking the brakes off.”
