The September Lanimer Event, 4th September 2021

The Lanimer Committee has been working hard over the past 8 months to make arrangements for the 2021 Lanimer

Event on Saturday the 4th September. This event will consist of a Lanimer Costume Parade from St Leonard Street to Castlebank park, followed by the Crowning of Lanimer Queen Elect Lacey Holmes in the park.

 Starting at 10.30am, our parade will be made up of several of our regular Lanimer Entrants and we are pleased to advise that we shall also be accompanied by Coalburn Silver Band, the Pipes and Drums of Coalburn IOR and by The Beats of Brazil samba band. Unfortunately the parade will not contain any Lanimer Lorries (COVID restrictions made construction of these impossible in recent months), but we are delighted to advise that our Lanimer Costume parade will include over 400 costumed entrants which we are sure will be a spectacular sight.

Keeping with tradition, we are pleased to advise that we will be accompanied by Police Scotland Mounted Branch who will head the parade. Other equestrian involvement in the parade will include our Lanimer Champion, accompanied by the First & Second Lords and Outriders on horseback who will lead our Lanimer Entrants down the High Street, Castlegate and on to Castlebank Park. Behind the Lanimer entrants will be members of the Lord Cornets’ Club who will be followed by the Lanimer Queen’s State procession including our Crowning Lady, Mrs Sharon Hamilton and remaining members of the Lanimer Court. 

Lanimer Queen Elect Lacey will round off the parade, accompanied by a guard of honour from the 499 Squadron of the Lanark RAF Air Cadets.

The Crowning Ceremony will take place in Castlebank Park at approximately 12 noon. 

**IMPORTANT NOTE**

Admittance to Castlebank Park will be by ticket only.

  • Wristband tickets will be issued to all those taking part in the parade with an allocation also provided to entrants families.
  • The numbers in the park will be limited such that reasonable social distancing can be practiced.
  • Within Castlebank park, the Crowning Ceremony will take place on staging within a roped off arena.
  • Allocated seating will be provided in the arena for the parents of the Lanimer Court.
  • VERY LIMITED NUMBERS of wristbands are available (free) to the public and will be supplied on a first come, first served basis by contacting lanimer.secretary@gmail.com

Following the Crowning Ceremony, Queen Lacey will issue Lanimer Medals to all those taking part in the parade. We then invite you to join us for “Queen Lacey’s Day in the Park”. Food retailers will be available in the park and we will have live musical entertainment on the arena stage till approximately 4pm. Please note that Castlebank Park will be an alcohol free event as we wish to encourage a family atmosphere in support of Queen Lacey and her Court.
