A Brief History of The Ancient and Honourable Guild of Town Criers
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.
We hold an Annual General Meeting each year – usually in September
