Calne Town Criers Competition 2017

March 17, 2017

As you may know, the Calne Town Criers Competition has gone bi-annual and was due to take place on the 16th September 2017. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have had to put the competition back by two weeks to Saturday 30th September 2017.

We are inviting over 60 criers this year, with a limit of 25 places. We will be offering discounted accommodation for both the Friday and Saturday nights for all criers attending, regardless of distance travelled, and are hoping to provide the Friday night at an additional discount or even free for criers travelling more than 70 miles as the crow flies. This may, however, have to be restricted to the first half dozen or so qualifying entries.

Invitations are due to go out shortly. If, by the end of April, you have not received one and would like to come, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and I will pass your details on to the wonderful Tracy at my council.
