The Belfast Tattoo is now firmly established as an annual event for the City, and we are delighted that we are continually drawing people from outside the City to attend the spectacle of this amazing production, and that our overseas visitors are growing year on year.
The 2016 Belfast Tattoo had a truly international feel, and we were joined by audience members who had travelled from United Kingdom, Republic Of Ireland, Germany, USA, Denmark, New Zealand, Canada, Sweden, The Netherlands, United Arab Emirates, Australia, Spain, France and Canada to attend The Belfast Tattoo.
Colin Wasson, Producer - The Belfast Tattoo said: “The Belfast Tattoo 2016 was, without doubt, the biggest and most memorable show we have presented to date. We are particularly delighted that The Imps Motorcycle Display Team will be performing in Belfast in 2017. They have recently performed to sell-out crowds at The 2016 Edinburgh Tattoo, and their display is sure to wow the audiences in Belfast!
We will also be joined by The Winnipeg Police Band, who have over 900 years of history.
Returning to perform in The 2017 Belfast Tattoo are Lume De Biqueira Bagpipe Band from Madrid, who first performed here in 1014.
We will once again stage performances from the best of our local talent, including the Coleraine Fife and Drum Band, Kellswater Flute Band, and welcome the return of Cahard Flute Band. We look forward now to The Belfast Tattoo 2017 which will be bigger and better than 2016.”
