Town Crier

‘Where are my tights? I’m late for work!

My town crier services can add something unique to your celebration or event. The town crier of history would ring a bell and make a proclamation. The topics were not always pleasant (for example, new taxation) but deemed necessary. The public at the time were generally illiterate, so ‘shouting the message’ was the norm and, however unpleasant the topic, it was a capital offence to attack the ‘crier’, thereby establishing the principle of ‘don’t shoot the messenger’.

A Crier’s job is much safer these days, mercifully. Ringing a bell and making a loud proclamation commands attention and can be used for a variety of ‘people management’ situations; guiding people back to a conference from a coffee break; calling them to the dining table; introducing a speaker; announcing an entrance.
