Rangerettes featured performers at Birmingham International Tattoo

The Kilgore College Rangerettes were featured performers Nov. 23-24 at the Birmingham International Tattoo in Birmingham, England.

This is the organization’s second performance in an official military marching tattoo as they were featured in the Basel Tattoo in Basel, Switzerland, in the summer of 2018.

Since its inception in 1989, the Birmingham International Tattoo is held each year in November at the Barclaycard Arena, featuring massed military bands and displays.

It attracts performers from the United States, Europe and Russia – as well as British bands from the Royal Marines, Coldstream Guards, King's Division and Gurkhas.

The festival features traditional military music, field gun racing, dancers, dog display teams and one of the largest groups of standard bearers with around 120 standards on parade at each performance.

Each year the event raises money for the Royal Star and Garter Homes that provide care for disabled ex-service men and women.
