Fabulous Tattoo - Pipe Bands just get the Scottish Blood Flowing! So exhilarating!  Congrats on the super programme too.  Margaret Bulley

 

Enjoyed very much - very well presented. Mr & Mrs McCrossan

 

Excellent production - favourite performer - the harpist. Children fantastic. Dancers very elegant.  Mrs Y Blackith

 

Thoroughly enjoyed the performance especially the Scottish Country and Irish Dance.   Joan Kinnear

 

My husband was so impressed with the brass band - he bought the CD!

I have always enjoyed the pipes & drums - this year everything was thoroughly enjoyable. Mrs J Inglis

 

This must be the best kept secret ever. Lou Myers

 

Most enjoyable - we hope there can be others. Anne Campbell

 

Flawless Country Dancing. Mrs E J Bennett

 

A wonderful show - all music and dance excellent entertainment - a night to remember, especially Irish Dance and Pipes and drums. The variety provided excellent balance.  Sylvia Gould

 

Once again a resounding success.  Your shows have given us so much pleasure and will never be forgotten!  Joy and Bob Hollamby

 

Thanks for a wonderful Scottish experience at the Royal Albert Hall. Stephen Lambe

 

A grand evening again - as a Highlander, "Cliar", in particular Arthur Cormack, is a favourite.  Hope to get to Glasgow.  Jean Reynolds

 

Greatly enjoyed. Everyone we spoke to seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Such a rich mixture and the shows do yourself and the performers credit. George Walker

 

Thanks again for inviting the Conor Academy to take part in your 4th Tattoo.  We all had a fantastic day and I thought this year's show was even better than last year (I've learnt a bit too).  All the comments I've received so far echo the above. Bridie Willis (Teacher Conor Academy Irish Dance)

 

What an amazing show! You cannot let a show like that at the Royal Albert hall finish.  Ailsa Resteghini

 

Congratulations on another great show. My family thoroughly enjoyed it. My dad gave his ultimate accolade "Smasher!" and remained awake throughout the performance! Jean Hart (Piper/Performer)

 

Had a great day on Sunday, I think I can speak for the whole band as well. It was a great experience and apart from an aching shoulder from carrying a drum all day, I would definitely do it again. It all came together so well it was amazing, well done. Veronique (Tenor Drummer, Harpenden Pipes and Drums)

 

Well, I must say I was impressed. Really, really sensational.
Brilliant performance. Sad to hear it could be the last one but at least I was there.
Paul Vandermeulen Belgium

It was a splendid evening. Thank you Ian. Anne Chandler

Another superb success - congrats - the whole bus thoroughly enjoyed it. Iris Welsh

Most entertaining, celebrating our Scottish background.  All performers excellent and programme has always offered a good variety of skills from all age group - hope you find a way to continue. Fay Daniels

A spectator stopped me to say he was moved to tears during Highland Cathedral. Roger Huth (Senior Pipe Major)

One that does the same for me....

You have given me + my cousins the chances of performing in the highest level of atmosphere and performance, that I never thought I would do and it will also be my last ever dancing performance, so I thank you and good luck in the future on whatever you decide to do! thank you.
