Town Crier competition (265kb)  


Video clip is Martin Hallett from Leighton Buzzard who won best "Haworth Holler" town crier competition in 2002 and 2003.

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.
