As a result of their impressive performance entertaining thousands of visitors to last weekend's Bannockburn Live event, the Clan Hay Pipe Band has been invited to perform at next year's Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

The Edinburgh Tattoo is a highlight of Scotland's national events programme and has delighted a worldwide audience in every year since 1950.  This annual celebration of music and entertainment, combined with Scotland's unique traditional military ceremonial, never fails to attract a global audience of millions.  Taking place in Edinburgh over three weeks in August, the Tattoo will be viewed by around 220,000 visitors on the castle esplanade and an estimated 100 million people across the globe will watch the performances on television.

This is the first time a clan pipe band has been invited to take part in the iconic event.  The 2015 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo will run from 2nd to 29th August.  Full details of performances by the Clan Hay Pipe Band will be published as soon as they are to hand.
