Christmas Market and Torchlight Parade

This years Torchlight Parade is on the same day - the 3rd of December - as our Christmas Market. Please take a look at the poster below for details of the market. The Torchlight Parade starts afterwards at 6.00pm and leaves from Town Hall heading to The Brunton where there will be an outside Carol service. Stars from the panto will be switching on the christmas lights. We look forward to seeing you all there.

Poppy Collecting

A whopping amount of £7,256.86 was collected for the Poppy Appeal in Musselburgh. Thanks to all who helped make this a magic number for Musselburgh.


We look at our town and try to identify projects which will enhance it and make it a more pleasant place to live in and visit. From new seats and picnic benches, safety railings at the Esk, maintaining our local monuments and lighting our historic buildings, the volunteers on the Community Council work hard to bring these improvements to you and the Town.

Concerts & Events

Every Year the Musselburgh and Inveresk Community Council host regular events and concerts from the Citizen of the Year to the Torch Light Parade. We also work hard to bring you the best new and existing talent that the area has to offer. Concerts take place at the Brunton Theatre, Fisherrow Harbour and Loretto School. There is a wide variety within the repertoire and as such something for everyone. Look out in the local press and for posters around town for details of this years shows. You can also find further information here on the website.


Musselburgh and Inveresk Community Council funded and chose the iconic gateway sculptures sited at Levenhall and Newhailes roundabouts.
