The Highland Military Tattoo is set for an expanded re-run next year following the success of its inaugural show at Fort George.
The 2014 spectacle in September was a sellout for two of its three performances and organisers plan to expand seating capacity next year from 2,000 to 2,500 each night.
Plans are also in place for a Saturday afternoon matinee to appeal to families with younger children.
The 2015 event will be held from September 11-13.
Crowd research from this year showed that the mix of armed forces and local civilian bands, dancers, singers and fiddlers was greatly enjoyed.
Feedback on the historical vignettes, RAF fly pasts, field gun competitions and spectacular fireworks display was also resoundingly positive.
Arrangements are also underway to extend the catering at the event with a food and drink village featuring local businesses.
The programme for the 2015 Highland Military Tattoo is set to be unveiled in January when tickets will go on sale.
Tattoo director Major General Seymour Monro said: “All the performers gave of their very best and with little rehearsal produced a spectacular and most professional show. It was particularly pleasing to have so many young musicians and dancers involved and we will continue to encourage participation from youngsters across the Highlands and Moray.
“The Hellcats from the US Military Academy were real stars who also entertained crowds in the centre of Inverness and at Culloden during their stay and we were thrilled to have them for our first tattoo. We are of course most grateful to all our sponsors, supporters and volunteers without whom we would never have got the whole enterprise off the ground.”
Tattoo producer, Major Bruce Hitchings, is currently devising 2015’s show. He said: “This time we are planning a similar mix of armed forces and civilian acts but with some different performers to ring the changes and to give others a chance to showcase their talents.
“The historical vignettes next year will focus on Waterloo on its 200th Anniversary and the 100th anniversary of the World War I Battle of Loos which involved so many Scottish soldiers.”
