The provisional schedule for the 2019 course which takes place from June 26th to July 6th to is already in place. Participants must be aged 19 on June 26th.

Tens of thousands

Speaking to 4BR, Dr Childs said that the course and its band has now become an integral part of the International Tattoo, an event that attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year.
