About The Glasgow Tattoo

The Glasgow Tattoo will now be an annual event for the City of Glasgow, and we are delighted that we are drawing an audience from outside the City to attend the spectacle of this amazing production, and that our appeal is also extended to overseas visitors.

This historic event will showcase some of the finest musicians and dancers from Scotland and across Europe, in a three hour show. The Glasgow Tattoo will allow the bands and performers to showcase their talents for the first time on a large scale in an indoor Arena. The net has been cast far and wide to bring together bands and dancers of the highest standard.

There will be performances from:

• The Massed Pipes & Drums Of The Glasgow Tattoo
• Drum & Showband Adeste Musica (Netherlands)
• The Band Of Liberation (Netherlands)
• Historical Flag Wavers Of Contrada Di Cori (Italy)
• The Glasgow Tattoo Highland Dance Troupe

With many more acts to be announced!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Glasgow Tattoo are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
