“Good to see once!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Nice military music show with light show on the castle of Edinburgh. Worth the price if you pay the cheapest tickets.

“Impressive scale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Definitely recommended, you won't see anything like it anywhere else in the world. Its not ideal if its raining or bad weather but you reserve so far in advance theres little you can do about that. Consider bringing a cushion for your bum, the seats get a bit uncomfortable after the first hour or so.

“Not quite what we were expecting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

This was on our list of things to go to at least once in our lives but it wasn't quite what we expected. The strangest bit being a medley of Kylie songs somewhere in the middle! The drummers were amazing but the rest was a bit odd to be honest and didn't seem to flow as well as some of the shows we had seen televised in previous years. It is a very expensive gamble to take so I would only invest in it if you are 100% sure you want to spend a couple of cold hours watching a lot of walking back and forth and some children dance around as savages. Not to mention another strange interlude where the musicians played childrens' tv themes (bananaman, batman, fantastic four etc). All in all a bit weird! And not in a good way!

“An amazing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

The setting for a truly enjoyable experience!
Great entertainment, sat in the middle on the side, I thought the seats were great, the venue is not that large so you would feel part of it wherever you sat- it looks much larger on TV.
