A combined Army Cadet Force Band will also perform in the arena, alongside 162 (Stockport) Squadron RAF Air Cadets Band.

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

In addition to providing great entertainment, the military tattoo raises much-needed funds for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity - the Army’s national charity.

Chris Thornton, Event Manager, said: "I am delighted that the tattoo has grown and developed over the last ten years with the public’s support.

"I am proud that once again we will have a fabulous tattoo showcasing the marvellous military bands that the UK can be so proud of.

"I am also delighted that we have managed to contribute over £90,000 to the Army’s national charity.”

The matinee performance on July 6 is sold out, but tickets are still available for the 7pm evening show.
