Electrifying Fun: The Tattoo’s Electro Pipes take a dip into Edinburgh’s ball pit at Ballie Ballerson

Posted: 25th August 2023

One of The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo’s most dazzling acts is seizing the opportunity for some further fun during this year’s Show run, by enjoying a stop at the capital’s biggest ball pit. 

The Tattoo Performers taking on the Electro Pipes set have been wowing crowds this month with their high energy, neon lit performance but swapped the Castle Esplanade for the bright disco lights and mesmerizing mirrors at Ballie Ballerson as they plunged waist-deep into its famous ball pit.  

Back by popular demand, Electro Pipes fuse together traditional bagpipe melodies with contemporary electronic beats to craft a lively and vibrant experience. The kaleidoscope of neon hues from cutting-edge projections, lighting effects and costumes makes for a must-see spectacle. 

Tickets are still available for the Tattoo, that runs until 26 August 2023 and can be purchased at or on the phone on 0131 225 1188. Tickets for the 2024 Show, Journeys, will be on general sale from 28 August 2023. 

Electro Pipes Performers were photographed in Ballie Ballerson, Edinburgh.
