Braw Lads’ Gathering Principals from previous years are automatically invited to take part in a “March Past” from the foot of Bank Street Brae to the War Memorial.

The march sets off at 7:50pm allowing the party, led by the current Braw Lad and Braw Lass to arrive at the War Memorial for 8pm.

The Braw Lass, accompanied by the Braw Lad and Attendants places the Red and White Roses she mixed in the morning at the Old Town Cross ceremony, on to the plinth.

Live music will be playing into the early hours in a packed Volunteer Hall.

The Braw Lad, Braw Lass and Attendants will finally relax with friends and family whilst receiving the congratulations from many well wishers on a job well done.

Hopefully you will be able to see the riders fording the River Tweed live on the Borders Telegraph Facebook page.
