Loanhead Gala will celebrate another historic milestone with the Crowning of Loanhead’s 100th Queen on Saturday, June 23.

There will be a photographic exhibition featuring Loanhead’s 100 Gala Queens in Loanhead Library from June 6-28 during normal library opening hours.

An additional banner has been commissioned and this features a picture of Loanhead’s First Queen, Catherine Brown, and a picture of Provost Hugh Kerr, who was the Founder of Loanhead Children’s Day.

Another special project to mark the Crowning of the 100th Queen is the return of the mounted jockeys for this year’s procession.

A souvenir brochure, featuring photographs of all 100 of Loanhead’s Queens, has been produced and will be on sale from Saturday (price £3).
