Town Crier Competition

Watton Town Council was privileged to host the first Watton Town Crier Competition on June 18th 2020 . Eight criers from around the country came to demonstrate their eloquence and style and what a fantastic show they gave us!

The winners were:
Overall winner and Best Ambassador – Adrian Holmes from Sandwell in the Black Country.
Runner Up – Paul Gough from Nuneaton & Bedworth in Warwickshire
Third Place & Best Themed Cry – Robert Needham from Colchester
Best Home Town Cry – John ‘Griff’ Griffiths from Sleaford.
Many thanks to
– all the criers, you were amazing.
– our judges, who were of course right!
– the local businesses and groups who supported the event including: 864 Watton Squadron RAFAC, Broom Hall Country Hotel, MRJ Cars, Kings Arms and H. Brett & Son.
Finally a huge thank you to Town Crier Mike for making it possible.
