A performance from a previous military tattoo in the Devonshire Dome and this year organisers say the shows will provide 'great entertainment'.

The Devonshire Dome will be standing to attention to welcome the Buxton Military Tattoo back for its ninth year on Saturday July 7.

The show promises to maintain its tradition of providing great entertainment while raising much-needed funds for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, which is the Army’s national charity.

Chris Thornton, Buxton Military Tattoo’s Event Manager, said: “Our ninth year has come around so quickly and I am sure that we will again have a fabulous tattoo showcasing the marvellous military bands that the UK can be so proud of.

“I am delighted that we have also managed to contribute over £82,000 to the army’s national charity.”

The tattoo in the Dome has a spectacular line-up featuring The Band of The Welsh Guards as well as The Band of The Mercian Regiment, which is the home regiment for this area. Joining the tattoo for the first time is The Band of Yorkshire Regiment who have a varied music display.

The show builds up to a spectacular massed bands finale including the emotive Sunset ceremony and also Lone Piper.

Performances will take place at 2pm and 7pm. Tickets are available on 01298 72190 or from www.buxtontattoo.org.uk.
