Organisers of the special pre-show component for the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo in Sydney this October have advised Pipe Bands Australia that registrations from Australian pipe band players to participate are still open.
The latest information from the Tattoo's ICB co-ordinators is:
Don’t miss your opportunity to participate with the Institutional and Community Bands (ICB) from across Australia, and parade into the stadium, to welcome the Salute Taker and open The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo when it arrives exclusively at Sydney's ANZ Stadium this October for four shows only! With over 1,400 performers and a life-sized Edinburgh castle, make sure you don't miss this sight and sound stadium spectacular! Tattoo shows are scheduled for the following dates in the ANZ Stadium, Sydney: Thursday 17 October 2019 @ 7.30pm Friday 18 October 2019 @ 7.30pm Saturday 19 October 2019 @ 11.00am Saturday 19 October @ 7.30pm (parade already full for ICB participants)
IMPORTANT: If you have not already done so, and wish to take part in the parade, you MUST contact register to join the fun and then you MUST purchase a ticket. To register email firstname.lastname@example.org
If seats are available we recommend you select seats close to the Gold seating areas 123/124 (eastern side) or 113/114 (western side) to be seated near other ICB members who have already purchased tickets. You can still participate in the parade if you sit elsewhere however the journey to your seat(s) from the parade field may take a little longer and you might miss the start of the show. Presale Group bookings: If your booking is not already paid, you must do so by 30 June 2019. You can alter your booking numbers at any time before you finalise the payment. New Group bookings (20+, $149 plus booking fee) can be made by phoning 1300 364 001. Be sure to tell the booking operator that you are an ICB parade group so they can try and seat you close to other ICB members. You can continue to become a part of the ICB through a ticket purchase right up until the start of the shows, however tickets are selling fast, seat allocation might be further away from the action and you may miss out, so BOOK NOW! Authorised Ticket Sellers: Ticketek and the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo Sydney are the only authorised seller. Tickets sold via other on sellers such as Viagogo can and will be voided where applicable as they contravene the conditions of sale.
