For the third year running Lammermuir Festival presents a spectacular site-specific music event unique to East Lothian.

One of Scotland’s most spectacular historic sites, Tantallon Castle is the setting for a brilliant music and light show which will bring the building, its story and East Lothian’s extraordinary past spectacularly alive.

Hear Tantallon tell its tales of intrigue, battle, witchcraft and downfall with a powerful musical score. Marvel at unforgettable images projected on the castle’s walls using amazing, state-of-the-art technology.

“Tantallon vast;
Broad, massive, high
and stretching far,
And held impregnable in war,
On a projecting rock it rose,
And round three sides the
ocean flows.”
Sir Walter Scott


Please refer to our Tickets page to book parking and transport for this event.

Monday the 17th of September is a local holiday.

Running time 50min approx

Tantallon tickets and transport must be booked in advance. Tickets will not be available on the door. Cars without a car parking ticket cannot be accommodated.

This is an outdoor promenade event.  Attenders are able to move around during the event, but are asked not to disturb other audience’s enjoyment of the show.

There are no covered areas and no seating is provided on the grass area where the show is projected. Therefore you may want to bring something to sit on, be it a rug or a folding chair. Also please wrap up warmly and wear robust footwear.

We advise you bring at least one torch with your party as the site will be very dark on exit, and this will assist when leaving the castle after the event.
