Event Details

Any member of the public who is interested in the Marches is very welcome to attend.

The Court of the Deacons of the Ancient and Royal Burgh of Linlithgow is a voluntary organisation made up of male and female deacons from town organisations; other duly elected men and women members and all living Past Provosts. Their prime function is to finance, organise and manage the Riding of the Marches. This is a year round task which annually gets more difficult as Marches Day costs rise to over £40,000. Through annual dances, Burns Suppers, Street Fairs, raffles and donations the necessary money is raised to pay for the many expenses incurred in running the town’s historic events. All of the official party who take part in the actual Riding Ceremonies pay their own way for the privilege.
