The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and Scottish Rugby kick off Summer collaboration

Posted: 18th July 2023

Celebrating a new partnership between two of Scotland’s most famous landmarks and events, The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo Performers (Pipers Stevie Small and Conner Pratt, Drum Major George Blair and Tattoo Dancers Kirstin Stewart and Cerys Jones), “try” to impress the Scotland Rugby squad (Rory Sutherland, Cam Redpath, and Scott Cummings) with their skills at the iconic Scottish Gas Murrayfield.

This summer the Tattoo Performers will swap Edinburgh Castle for Murrayfield; pipers will provide the rugby players with a very warm Scottish welcome ahead of each of the summer international rugby matches, as well as performing for crowds in the popular Fan Zone areas.

The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and Scottish Rugby are also offering a week-long on-air and online competition with Heart Radio, including tickets to see the International France v Scotland Rugby match on Saturday 5 August, transport from Murrayfield to Edinburgh Castle and the Spirit of Scotland hospitality package including premium seating to enjoy the Tattoo.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at or on the phone on 0131 225 1188. There are also still some tickets remaining for the half price Preview Night on 3 August.

Scotland will face Italy, France and Georgia this July and August in The Famous Grouse Nations Series. Please visit for further information and tickets.
