16th -24th July 2017 Eyemouth Herring Queen Festival
The first Herring Queen was crowned in July 1939 the first girl to be given the honour was Mary Craig. The event stopped during the war years. Mary Craig remained the Herring Queen until she crowned Ann Rosie in 1946.
The Herring Queen and her Maids were originally chosen by their scholastic ability at Eyemouth High School and then by popular vote by their school peers. Since 2001 the Herring Queen has been chosen by a panel of local townspeople.
