Alfa Travel Presents... The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo 'Voices'

Departing from pick up points in the North East, the North West and Yorkshire, these 2 day breaks include tickets to the 2022 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo show and a visit to the Kelpies.

The Tattoo has a proud history stretching back almost seven decades. Following the production of ‘Something About a Soldier’ in the Ross Bandstand in 1949, it was decided to create an event which ran alongside the existing Edinburgh Festivals. The official Tattoo was duly created with its first performance in 1950.



As it makes its return to the Edinburgh Castle Esplanade in 2022 with a new show titled Voices’, The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo will celebrate the power of connection with a spectacular combination of music, dance and military precision from some of the world’s leading armed forces and cultural performers.

“Through the challenges and separation of the last two years, people of every culture have used their voices to remain connected…


Voices is our desire to make next year’s Tattoo not just a reunion, but a celebration of the connections, cultures and languages that bring us together at the unique setting of Edinburgh Castle.”

Michael Braithwaite, Creative Director.

For 2022, the Army is confirmed as the lead service. You can enjoy the legendary sound of the Massed Pipes and Drums that will echo around the Esplanade as part of Voices, supported by Tattoo pipers and drummers, and musicians from UK Military Regiments.  You will be pleased to know that the Tattoo dancers and Shetland fiddlers will also join the line-up, with international acts and further details about Voices announced in the coming months.

Aside from all the excitement of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo itself, if you book one of these amazing value tours with Alfa Travel will also enjoy an overnight stay in the fantastic 3 Star Scottish tourist board rated Leapark Hotel, located in lovely Grangemouth.
