Photographs from the Buxton Militatry tattoo 2010 held at the Univeristy of Derby, Buxton campus.

The inaugural Buxton Military Tattoo held inside the magnificent Georgian Devonshire Dome of the campus of the University of Derby, Buxton, was described as a triumph. A sell-out with over 900 spectators, it featured world class military music, marching and entertainment.


The military marching bands included: the Heavy Cavalry and Cambrai Band; the Nottinghamshire Band of the Royal Engineers (V); our local Volunteer Band of The Mercian Regiment; and Derbyshire Army Cadet Force Band. The Pipes and Drums of RAF Waddington were also outstanding as were 126 (City of Derby) Squadron ATC with a drill display.


The traditional, profound ceremony of Evening Hymn, with the solo bugle call of Sunset and the lowering of the Union Flag, allowed all present to stand, to pause and to think about all casualties of military operations and their families, amongst them Marine Scott Taylor of Buxton killed shortly beforehand in Afghanistan. The salute was taken by Her Majestys Lord Lieutenant, Mr William Tucker, who is also President of The Derbyshire Committee.


The tattoo was organised by the Derbyshire Fundraising Committee of ABF The Soldiers Charity and raised over 10,000 for the charity. It is hoped the event will become an annual part of the Buxton Festival Fringe. Planning is already under way for Saturday 9th July 2011.


A double DVD of the 2010 Buxton Military Tattoo is available for 10 plus 1 p&p. For details view www.buxtontattoo.org.uk or call Chris Thornton on 01298 25568.
