NEXT year’s Edinburgh Tattoo will celebrate “Our Home, Friends and Family”, it has been announced.

Organisers said a 1000-strong cast would gather once again on a floodlit Edinburgh Castle Esplanade for the 65th annual extravaganza.

Tickets for the 2014 Tattoo go on sale on Monday, with crowds of 220,000 again expected to enjoy the performance throughout August.

Tattoo chief executive and producer Brigadier David Allfrey: “Our production looks set to transport the audience on a magical journey around the Commonwealth, departing from our home in Scotland across the Mediterranean, south over Africa, up through the Far East and India before dropping down to the Antipodes, then homewards across America, pausing to soak up sunshine in the Caribbean.”
