Expect more pomp, pageantry and majesty at this spectacular music and dance showcase, featuring a diverse line up of national and international artistes as The City of Liverpool Tattoo returns to Liverpool this year.

Aged from 8 to 80, performers charmed the audience with tuneage close to Liverpool’s heart, including a Beatles set from Dublin’s Artane Band, and renditions of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ from Britain’s Got Talent finalists Innova and ‘Fare Thee Well, My Own True Love’ in the powerful event finale.
