Join Watton town crier Mike Wabe to discover the history of town criers at an online friends event.

Hear just how long ago town criers were proclaiming their messages (and what messages they were).

Learn about such things as our livery, evolution, rationale, means of attracting attention and our connections with the law. And, discover some of the weird and wonderful things that have happened to modern town criers.
