Festival Day in Jedburgh!
Friday 8 July 2011 was Festival Day in Jedburgh and a fun time was had by all at the Glenbank Hotel.
Jedburgh locals counting the horses on the ride-out
The morning ride-out to Ferniehirst Castle and the Capon Tree and back to Jedburgh saw 284 horses take part.
The afternoon fancy dress parade was well attended, attracting royalty in the form of ‘Lady Godiva’ and a mini ‘Wills & Kate’ as well as many visitors, including Glenbank guests, plus the good folks of Jedburgh.
Pipe and brass bands provided the musical entertainment for the parade (also in fancy dress of course).
Up at the Glenbank House Hotel, our restaurant was buzzing with our special Festival lunch & dinner menu. It’s always fully booked, so if you want to join us next year – book early!
