Country Living (UK) - - A Month In The Country -

Now in its 74th year, the Eye­mouth Her­ring Queen Fes­ti­val in Ber­wick­shire cel­e­brates the bounty of the sea and com­mem­o­rates the 1881 dis­as­ter when 23 fish­ing boats were lost. Adorned in lav­ish cos­tumes, the Queen and her at­ten­dants sail into the har­bour be­fore dis­em­bark­ing and tak­ing part in a pa­rade through the town, which ends in a crown­ing cer­e­mony.
