The Kirkin’ of the Honest Lad and Honest Lass marks the true beginning of Festival Week. This community service will be held in Northesk Parish Church at 11:00am and a warm welcome is extended to everyone.

The procession will leave the Town Hall at 10:30am from under the shadow of the ancient tolbooth which survived the fires set ablaze by the English after the battle of Pinkie in 1547. Nearby is the Mercat Cross, a reminder of when our Toun was was the scene of two open-air markets held in the square.



This is the go to platform for Musselburgh Festival. Dating back to 1936, our week long annual celebration honours the traditions of our Town and brings our community together.
