  • Short Summary

    Crazy scenes in silence of town criers.

  • Description

    Item title reads: ""Human Loud Speakers" W.B Angliss of Marlborough judged "the big noise" from 13 other competitors in Town Criers Championship."

    Pewsey, Wiltshire

    C/U of "Town Criers" in various costumes, ringing their hand bells. They take turns on a podium to read proclamations, watched by a jostling crowd in background.

    Note: The town criers put heart and soul into their announcements, which seems crazy in a silent report.
