Dumfries Tattoo Announce 2022 Flagship Expansion

The Royal Burgh of Dumfries Tattoo confirmed on Friday Morning that their 2022 Tattoo will go ahead as planned, following continued positive messaging from the Scottish Government over COVID Recovery – with tickets now on sale.

The Flagship Event in the South of Scotland had been significantly affected with the recent Coronavirus restrictions – in an announcement on Social Media, the organisation sought to thank the community around them for continuing to support the Tattoo and its activities throughout the past 18 months.

The announcement then went on to confirm speculations that the Tattoo event would be expanded, for the first time ever, to be accompanied on the same evening with a traditional Scottish Ceilidh: held in The Easterbrook Hall directly following the Tattoo.

Tickets for both events can be purchased online at: www.ticketsource.co.uk/dumfries-tattoo or from the Midsteeple Box Office.

Performance Director Gavin Gillon-Maxwell commented on the announcement: “We are delighted to be able to expand our offering in 2022, as we look to continue to champion Scottish Entertainment: while supporting and empowering Young People to be involved in a major musical event.”

Stuart Robb, Charity Chairman added: “The Tattoo continues to be a significant event in the musical calendar of the South of Scotland, and we are delighted to be able to work with several community partners – including The Crichton Trust – to deliver an evening of entertainment for all the family to enjoy.”

The Dumfries Tattoo was first held in 2012 – and has since grown to become a significant event in the South of Scotland attracting thousands of visitors to the region from across the globe over the years – all while giving Young People the opportunity to perform on stage alongside Nationally and Internationally acclaimed performers.

Commenting on the future of the Tattoo Lyle Hamilton, Commercial Director noted: “We continue to grow at a steady, but significant pace – and as we look to 2022 being able to expand our performance portfolio is the first step in allowing us to grow and support the community we have built around the organisation over the past few years.”
