The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is the most spectacular show in the world, enjoyed by an international television audience of 100 million.  But there’s no substitute for being there, as part of the 217,000-strong audience over its three-week season at Edinburgh Castle. As a member of Scouting you can become part of it.

The Scout Association in Edinburgh has been part of this fantastic experience since the first Tattoo in 1950 and once again this year we want you to be part of its magic!

We are looking for dynamic, enthusiastic and confident Explorer Scouts and Leaders to be part of the sales team to sell programmes and merchandise to the Tattoo’s international audience as they make their way up the world famous Castlehill and into their seats.

You will need to be available for about five or six nights between 2 and 25 August 2018. You will be on duty from 7pm until approx 9.30pm on week nights and from 6pm until 10.45pm on a Saturday. (Leaders can expect to be away later than this.)

Explorers can possibly use the event to complete sections of their badge work or towards a section of their Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. All in attendance will receive a special gift to commemorate their participation in The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo 2018.

If you are interested then please complete this form and return it by email to by 12 June 2018.

For further information please contact Sue Liddle (see form for details).
