Introducing the 2017 Performers
Britain’s biggest indoor international tattoo, with over 1,000 performers, will return to The Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham at the end of November 2017 bringing together marching bands, exciting displays and culminating in the spectacular Grand Finale featuring all the performers in a spectacle of pomp and pageantry.

The 2017 Birmingham International Tattoo included all the regular elements including massed bands, spectacular displays and massed standards. The full list of international bands and other performers taking part is shown on the right hand side of this page.

Sharing the arena with the musicians during the three-hour family event will be a range of spectacular displays including Royal Air Force Cosford Queen’s Colour, the RNRMC Field Gun Competition, the United Kingdom Disco Display Team and the Parade of Massed Standards.

This year’s Birmingham International Tattoo will culminate in a Spectacular Grand Finale featuring the Massed Bands and special guest appearances by vocal soloist Captain Gary Chilton (from The Soldiers). The event would not be complete without the popular Closing Ceremony which will feature the Royal Air Force Cosford Queen’s Colour and Escort, the traditional Land of Hope and Glory, the Evening Hymn and the Lone Piper.

Whether you prefer the spectacle of the international marching bands, the thrills of the exciting displays, or the pomp and pageantry of the spectacular Grand Finale, this annual event is sure to prove popular with both young and old as there is something for all the family at the Birmingham International Tattoo.
