Birmingham International Tattoo

In November 2018, the famous indoor international tattoo that celebrates all things pomp and pageantry will return to Arena Birmingham.

Bringing together marching bands and entertaining displays, 1,000 performers will join local groups to create a three-hour spectacle suitable for groups of all ages, which culminates in a Grand Finale.

The Birmingham International Tattoo 2018 will take place on 24th and 25th November. You can get a taste for what the event entails by watching the video below:
