|The first Loanhead Children's Day was staged in 1903 although it has links to earlier events in the town. The crowning of a School Queen was introduced in 1904 and, with the exception of a Children's Day in 1918 just prior to the end of the First World War, this ceremony has remained the central feature of the event ever since.
The links below are to basic details of each year when a Queen has been crowned including the names of the Queens and their Court members, the crowning ladies, the dates of the events, the venues used and the bands which took part.
Much more information is included in a book on the history of the event covering the period to 2001, copies of which remain available for purchase
