Each year Arena Birmingham hosts the magnificent Birmingham Tattoo, a spectacle of the world’s finest military bands, music and pageantry. Over 1,000 performers share the stage for an incredible three-hour performance like no other. Promising something for all ages, join the thousands that have visited the largest indoor Tattoo over its 29 years – here’s five reasons to experience this prestigious family event for yourself.
- Behold the pomp and pageantry of bands from all over the world…
Each year world-class performers create an exhilarating performance full of massed international bands. This year’s event includes the lead Band of the Household Cavalry alongside all the marching bands, plus the popular Massed Pipes and Drums with Highland Dancers. Joining them are the well-respected Warsaw Police Band from Poland and Adest Musica (The Drum and Showband) from the Netherlands, one of the top international bands.
- Enjoy the traditional displays, from field guns racing to dog display teams…
A wealth of displays include the Royal Air Force Cosford Queen’s Colour; a Field Gun Competition featuring crews from the Royal Navy, Army & Royal Air Force; the United Kingdom Disco Display Team – an uplifting dance routine performance by almost 400 enthusiastic young people; a Flyball Dog Display; and The Parade of Massed Standards.
Each year the event raises money at each performance for the Royal Star & Garter Homes, a charity who cares for disable veterans. The organisers of the Tattoo aim to bring the total raised to an incredible £100,000 during this year’s event.
- See the magic of the grand finale…
Guaranteed to be the most unforgettable moment of the performance, the patriotic grand finale will feature all of the performers and special guest appearances by vocal soloist Captain Gary Chilton (from The Soldiers). The event would not be complete without the popular Closing Ceremony which will feature the Royal Air Force Cosford Queen’s Colour and Escort, the traditional Land of Hope and Glory, the Evening Hymn and the Lone Piper.
Our day trip includes a top price lower block ticket for the matinee performance.
