Crying of the Marches

Event Details

On the Friday before the Marches Day itself, the Town Crier, parades the High Street from the Low Port to the West Port (the ancient gateways into the burgh) and every so often stops to duly inform the townsfolk that their presence is required the following Tuesday to participate in the Riding of the Town`s Marches.

In his mock-Mediaeval garb, the Town Crier also stresses the importance of the occasion by announcing that everyone must attend in their best “carriage and equipage, apparel and array” – under a non-attendance penalty of one hundred pounds Scots!

This year will be a Virtual Crying o the Marches on Facebook and on the You Tube Channel – click the photo below.
