Visiting principals with Jethart Callant Euan Munro.

PICTURES THROWBACK: Borderers gather for naming of 2019 Jethart Callant

There should have been cheers and celebrations across all of the Borders’ towns these past few weeks as they would ordinarily be appointing their common riding, civic week or other festival principals.

Traditionally last to annnounce its main man is the Jethart Callant’s Festival, but there’ll be no announcement from the court house balcony and no verse and chorus of Jethart’s Here to welcome the man of the hour this year...instead, we’ve rummaged through our photo archives to take a look back to last year’s declaration night in Jedburgh, when townsfolk were out in force to see Euan Munro brought to the balcony and declared the 2019 callant.
