Most Promising Authentic NI Event or Festival Experience award!The Belfast International Tattoo are very proud to announce that we have reached the final three in the category of "Most Promising Authentic NI Event or Festival Experience" at the annual "Tourism NI Awards" in May 2017.

This is indeed a great honour and recognition by Tourism NI of all of the work that goes into this show by a very small group of people.

It is also a great recognition of the work put in by the Local Bands who have risen to the challenge and put in the graft in the years previous to this. And lastly it is a recognition of the support you the public have shown to The Belfast International Tattoo by making it one of the most sought after Tickets here in Northern Ireland and one of the most talked about events in Europe which now has a waiting list of Bands from around Europe and Beyond who now want to come to Belfast to appear here and perform.

We in the Belfast International Tattoo Team thank you all for your support and we hope we do you proud on the night of the awards.

Tourism NI and Tourism Ireland awardsThis afternoon the team spent some time being interviewed by a panel of Judges from Tourism NI and Tourism Ireland. As a result of this interview we hope to have some really exciting news for you next week.

New Website - more mobile friendly We decided to upgrade our Belfast International Tattoo website to make it much more compatable with mobile phones and tablets. Hope you like it, and any feedback is welcome

The BBC will not be joining us this year to record the TattooConfirmation came today, the BBC will not be joining us this year to record the Tattoo for broadcast. This is due to our date clashing with Proms in the Park, which is taking place the same evening.

So this year you are just going to have to join us in the Arena if you want to see the Tattoo.
