Extra date added to Belfast Tattoo

An extra date has been added to the Belfast Tattoo in September.

The event has proved to be so popular that the organisers have included September 4 in the run.

The Belfast Tattoo 2014 will showcase some of the finest musicians and dancers from across Ulster and beyond, in a two hour show which will allow the Artistes and Bands to feature and showcase their talents.

The Musical Director for Pipes and Drums 2014 will be Derek Boyce. Derek has joined Field Marshall Montgomery Pipe Band from St Laurence O’Toole Pipe Band, Dublin. He has also been a member of Cullybackey Pipe Band and Killeen Pipe Band.

As part of the Belfast Tattoo 2014, there will be a display of 30 Champion Drum Majors, under the control of Senior Drum Major Brian Wilson MBE. The 30 Champion Drum Majors, drawn from all levels across competition grades, will put on a display never before seen in Ulster.

Due to demand, an extra show has been added on Thursday September 4, in addition to Friday 5 and Saturday September 6.

Tickets for the extra show are on sale now from all usual outlets.
