The 2012 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo

The 2012 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is an event not to be missed. Here's a glimpse at what you're missing out on.

The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is back for it's 62nd year and it promises to be better than ever.

25 nights, bands from across the globe and thousands of people attending - it's a spectacle everyone needs to see at least once.

The first weekend is already underway and people have been raving about their experience so far. If you are attending, remember to wear comfortable high heels and shoes; those pesky cobbled streets are everywhere!

Still not sure if you should go? Here's an overview of what's happened.

Apparently some people don't know the Tattoo is on or what it is?

Derek Martin @fribbletheatre

Overheard in Edinburgh: "...and I thought, Why would you queue up just to get a tattoo?"
