Town Criers go as far back as 1066 when news of events was passed from town to town.
Up to the late 19th Century most people were unable to read and so news was passed on to the public by the Town Crier.

The word "Oyez Oyez" (translated as "hear ye" or "listen") was familiar in towns and villages as was the ringing of the bell to gather public attention. They finish their proclamation with "God save the Queen" (or King).

The town criers hat has a feather in it symbolising the quill which was the implement for writing.
