Inverness Tattoo 2009

This year it’s the 58th anniversary of the Inverness Tattoo and the week-long event, which is popular with the locals as well as the thousands of visitors to Inverness, will be offering performances every night at the Northern Meeting Park.

The soul of the Tattoo will be the enthralling sound and vision spectacular provided by the Pipes and Drums and Military Bands. There will be displays of Highland and Country Dancing given by performers from Inverness and Canada and  there will also be the exciting and colourful Chinese Ribbon and Fan dances. Although the main focus of  the Tattoo is obviously the Scottish performers the Tattoo programme will also include a hugely diverse display of talent from artistes around the UK and abroad.

If the weather is favourable the Golden Lions Parachute display team will put on a spectacular freefall display to commence proceedings each evening. The Imps Youth Motorcycle display team, who have an impressed audiences around the world, will keep the audience entertained with their skillful and comical routiness. The combined three Cadet Services will show the precision and commitment required for a drill display and the Grand Finale will be a 90 minute show featuring the Cadet Services Guard of Honour, the Royal British Legion Colour Party, the entire cast and the poignant Lone Piper.

If you are still looking for a bed and breakfast in Inverness you need to book up quickly as Summer is busy and this event always draws visitors from all over the world.
