Dust off your finest tartan! The 2024 Liverpool Plains Military Tattoo is back, better than ever, with enough entertainment to make you want to flip your kilt.

If you have been dreaming of a Celtic Country experience, you won’t have long to wait with the Liverpool Plains Military Tattoo on Saturday the 9th of March in Quirindi. The event will be held at the Longfield Oval on Henry Street and is the fifth time the event has been run. Featuring pipe bands and a range of dance and musical performances that celebrate the unique and beautiful Celtic culture, this will be a community event that is sure to entertain all ages.

“We are very lucky to have a number of high-quality pipe bands and Celtic performers joining us for the event,” said Liverpool Plains Shire Mayor Doug Hawkins.

“We are thrilled that they will be doing individual performances as well as a combined show. It is incredible to watch and will transport you straight into the Scottish Highlands for the evening.”

Pipe bands are coming from both New South Wales and Queensland, with 40 pipers already confirmed to perform together on the night. Dancers and the Mad Kelpie Celtic folk band will also be performing to keep the crowds entertained.

“Over 25 market stalls have already signed up and we will have free facepainting for the kids, a fun Celtic-themed photo booth and a fantastic firework display,” said Mayor Hawkins.

Entry to the Military Tattoo is free. The market will kick off from 5pm with musical entertainment starting at 5.30pm and the pipe band performances at 7pm. Attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic blanket or chairs to sit under the stars and enjoy the event.

Council are currently seeking interest from market businesses and food vendors to take part. Any businesses interested in being part of the festivities can contact Council at council@liverpoolplains.nsw.gov.au.
