Joining the Ancient and Honourable Guild of Town Criers

Not yet a member of the AHGTC? Why not consider joining today?

By joining the oldest and largest organisation, which represents town criers throughout the world, you will be able to access all the news and views of what is happening throughout the appointed role of Town Crier.

You will receive our magazine, The Crier, with news and views from over 150 fellow criers.

You will be invited to compete with other Guild Members in Town Crier Competitions – a great way to meet your fellow ‘Bellmen’ who can give great advice on where to get items of clothing for your regalia, facts and content to include in any presentations you may be asked to do about the historical role of a Town Crier. Finally by joining the AHGTC you will have public liability insurance cover up to £5,000,000.
