The Guild was founded at Hastings in 1978 when Criers met after the British Championships and elected a Committee.
One aim was to regularise the organisation of competitions and to define rules for town criers to follow.
In 1999 it was decided that the Guild should be formed into a limited company, limited by guarantee, to better protect the members.
In 2003 we celebrated our 25th anniversary with the World Championships in Newquay and a dedication service at Alcester before the AGM.
We hold an Annual General Meeting each year - usually in September in Alcester.
In 2005, for the first time, it included a conference session before the meeting.
