Due to the ongoing issues with Covid-19 (Coronavirus), the organisers of Britain’s biggest international indoor tattoo – The Birmingham International Tattoo – have announced the postponement of this year’s event.
After serious consideration, and with much regret, the organisers of the Birmingham International Tattoo, scheduled to take place at the Utilita Arena Birmingham on Saturday 28th November and Sunday 29th November 2020, have postponed this year’s event to Saturday 27th November and Sunday 28th November 2021.
Speaking about the decision, Tattoo Producer Norman Rogerson MBE said: “The safety of all our staff, volunteers, international performers and, of course, our audiences is paramount and we take our role as organisers of such a large, major event very seriously. As the scale of the Covid-19 pandemic is constantly evolving and its effects are likely to be long-lasting, we feel we have no option but to postpone the Birmingham International Tattoo to November 2021.”
Norman added: “As the planning for each Tattoo takes considerable time and involves coordinating international performers, who may not be able to rehearse or travel this year, we believe the best approach is to ‘mark time’ and start our planning now for 2021 when we can safely bring together some of the world’s finest Marching Bands and Spectacular Displays to the Utilita Arena in Birmingham for Britain’s biggest Indoor Tattoo. After 31 years of the event, we are saddened to take this decision, but we must put safety first and the current global situation is beyond our control. We wish all those involved with the Tattoo, our audience and their families all the best at this challenging time and we look forward to welcoming them again in 2021 for another spectacular event.”
The next Birmingham International Tattoo will now take place at the Utilita Arena Birmingham on Saturday 27th November 2021 at 6pm and Sunday 28th November 2021 at 2pm.
