Posted on Innova’s Facebook site: “That’s a wrap at the Glasgow Tattoo!!

“What a fab time we had performing in the magnificent SSE Hydro. Well done to everyone involved in organising the event and thank you for inviting us to be part of it.

“Well done to all our dancers for your hard work in the run up to the Tattoo and throughout the past week on site.

“You should be very proud of the performance you put on! Thanks also to the parents who travelled with the group, helping to chaperone and assisting backstage!

“Super experience for us all to share together!”

The headline act was the Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines who are world-renowned for their musicianship and precision marching performance.
