The Signal Hill Tattoo!
History, pride and pageantry. The Signal Hill Tattoo.
A St. John’s tradition since 1967, the Signal Hill Tattoo reenactment and performance is worth taking in this summer.
The stage for the performance is the field alongside the Signal Hill Interpretation Centre with the beautiful harbour and undulating hills as the back drop.
Approximately 65 youth take part each year. Watch the trailer for a peek inside the Tattoo experience, as the young soldiers enter the field of battle:
The animation starts with a performance by the 1795 Royal Newfoundland Regiment of Foot Fife and Drum Corps followed by a series of mortar and cannon fire reenactments and a tribute is paid to the Royal Newfoundland Regiment of the First World War. The ceremonies end with the tin whistle renditions of God Save the Queen, Oh Canada and the Ode to Newfoundland as each respective flag is lowered.
