Experience the pomp and pageantry at the Birmingham International Tattoo

International military performers from Poland and France will join forces with our own British Army at the Resorts World Arena Birmingham on September 10th and 11th for the much-anticipated return of the Birmingham International Tattoo.

A parade unlike any other, the 2022 Birmingham International Tattoo brings together massed marching bands, pipes and drums, and exciting displays including the Inter-Service Field Gun Competition, dog-racing during the British Flyball Association competition, plus massed dancers. They will all join forces for over three hours of pageantry and spectacle in the comfort of the Resorts World Arena which is easily accessible on the NEC campus.

The Birmingham Tattoo would not be complete without the ever-popular Spectacular Grand Finale. Featuring over 1,000 performers, including the Parade of the Massed Standards, as well as the Royal Air Force Cosford Queen’s Colour and Escort, the Tattoo will certainly be cause for plenty of celebration and pride. The event includes the traditional “Land of Hope and Glory”, “The Evening Hymn”, led by the Tattoo guest vocalists, and joined by “The Lone Piper” in this fantastic celebration of pomp and pageantry.

Whether you prefer the massed marching bands, the skirl of the pipes and drums, the fast-paced action of the field gun or the flyball dog races, or the pomp and pageantry of the massed standard bearers, there is something for all the family at the 2022 Birmingham International Tattoo.

Tattoo Producer Norman Rogerson MBE said: “The Tattoo will be one of the final events to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and will put Birmingham once again on the map as a host of another international event following the Commonwealth Games.”

Tattoo Production Manager Ian Collins said: “The Birmingham Tattoo is very proud to have supported many charities over many years and this year we are once again supporting The Royal Star & Garter Homes, who have a home for veterans in Solihull, and Troop Aid, a charity also based in Solihull but with international reach, who supply the basic essentials in an emergency pack when British Troops are injured in operations or training.”

The Birmingham International Tattoo will take place at the Birmingham Resorts World Arena at the NEC on Saturday 10th September 2022 at 6pm and Sunday 11th September 2022 at 2pm. Tickets are priced at £20 to £35 with reduced prices for children and senior citizens. Special group discounts are also available for those purchasing 10 tickets or more at one time.
