Town Crier | Entertainment | Humourous

I come in full regalia, and explain how I became the Honorary Town Crier for Farnham, Surrey, in 2003.

I talk about the history of Town Criers, their role in days gone by and in the modern age, the significance of the regalia, how many Town criers are there, what do we 'shout' about and what happens at competitions.

I conclude with an actual 'shout' or 'cry'.
