FORT NELSON TATTOO – 8th September

fortnelson12The Fort Nelson Tattoo will feature a unique mix of military and civilian bands and display teams set within the historic setting of the Fort as well as exciting firings of ‘big guns’ and a historic fly-past.

The show will include music from the British Youth Corps of Drums, HMS Sultan Volunteer Band and the Rose & Thistle Pipe Band. The tattoo will also include an English Civil War display by The Sealed Knot and a Second World War display.

The ‘big guns’ will be rolled out, including the famous Fort Nelson ‘Big Guns’ which will be fired as part of the tattoo and a fly-past of a C-47 Dakota by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
