You can still buy Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo 2019 tickets - here's everything you need to know

A highlight of the festival calendar, the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is back and there's still time to buy tickets.

This year, from the 2-24 August, the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo presents a show titled 'Kaleidoscope' which promises audiences an exploration of colour, music and light, and was inspired by the optical invention created by Scottish physicist Sir David Brewster in 1816.

Lead by the British Army, the Tattoo celebrates the symmetries through precision-led performances, featuring military and cultural acts. The 100-minute extravaganza is filled with dazzling performances rich with colour - through lighting and projections - sound, special effects and the symmetries of the Armed Forces.
