Wondering if anyone is going or has been to;

The 2012 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo In 2012 (3-25 August), Edinburgh once again hosts one of the World's most spectacular entertainment events as The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo draws together a host of creative talent from four continents to pay sparkling tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee and the year of Creative Scotland.

While I'm not going, I look for one of our members to do so, and to report back to us with pictures. Gordon, do you hear that?

Oh, no pressure then?!:D
Only been to it once, back in 1985, but the atmosphere has to be felt. Good suggestion though, I'm about due another night out through there.:cool:

So we can take it you will be attending? Gordon, a well written narrative of the event may give us a small glimmer of the atmosphere. I know you'll do your best.
One of the top 10 things on my "bucket list" is to golf St. Andrews and visit Scotland. Maybe in another lifetime :(

There's no pressure, Gordon, but we do expect extensive reporting.

Listen, I must apologise chaps. I couldn't get a ticket for any of the shows over the last couple of weeks.:o Maybe next year.
If it's any consolation, BBC1 will be showing the highlights tomorrow night and you'll be able to watch them after that on BBCi - BBC iPlayer - Search :edinburgh%

No problem Gordon. We'll just have to wait. I'll sit right here.
