The South African Tattoo Is Marching, Singing & Dancing To Pretoria This October!


After five years of sell-out shows in Johannesburg, the South African Tattoo is returning for yet another spectacular, but this time, they’ll be making their way to Pretoria. Now to be staged in the new state-of-the-art indoor arena at Time Square, this is one of the biggest shows South Africa has ever seen. Running over two days and nights, with over 500 local and international performers dazzling audiences in a 95-minute cultural spectacle redolent of the world-famous Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, this is something you definitely don’t want to miss!

Immerse yourself in the stirring sounds of massed pipes and drums that traditionally open the show and be captivated by the emotional finale featuring the entire cast of pipes and drums, brass bands, massed highland dancing, military bands, a choir, the JHB Youth Orchestra, thrilling action items and cultural displays from performers around the world. There will also be a special guest appearance by South Africa’s star singer, Corlea Botha.
