East Lothian Courier – 17th October 2019.

Haddington’s annual festival will not take place next year [ 2020] . The popular week-long event has attracted thousands of people over more than 50 years. However, the unavailability of the town’s Corn Exchange, which has acted as a hub for the event, and rising costs have meant it will not take place in 2020.

Some photographs of previous Festival parades and events in the town.

Jan Wilson, chairwoman of the town’s community council, told the ” Courier” that it was a tough decision, we also have to look at what is going to cost for groups to run events and having to pay for halls.

Theres is no way the community council could fit that bill – it would be too great.

A fun day is still being planned for next year but it means a dramatic downscaling on the annual attraction, which usually includes everything from quizzes to ceilidhs and concerts.

The rising costs were not an issue specific to Haddington, but the whole of East Lothian, with galas and Christmas light switch-on events likely to be affected.

Provost John MacMillan said he was dissappointed, and he is hoping that maybe Haddstock might comeback and hoping other things might replace it.
