Oyez, Oyez – get ready to have your eardrums hammered with 14 town criers on the way to Montgomery.

Sue Blower Montgomery Town Crier  has managed to secure a second Town Crier Competition following the great success of two years ago of the town’s first national event.

This year the 14 criers from all over the UK will arrive on Friday, July 15 and meet their host families and Saturday, July 16 sees the competition made up of two cries from each crier.

“In the morning a 'Home Cry' there will be a from their hometowns and in the afternoon 'George Herbert our famous poet,’ said Sue Blower.

“There will be a parade in the town on Saturday at 10.15am and then again on Sunday morning from Broad Street into church at 10 30am.”

There will be the unveiling of a full size portrait of Montgomery’s very own town crier  at 10am in The Town Hall by local artist is Daniel James Yeomans  who lives just outside Montgomery.

On Saturday night the Mayor and Councillors will host a civic reception in the Town Hall when entertained will be supplied by Newtown and District Male Voice Choir.

“This will be a memorable and colourful event,” said Sue. “It has only been made possible with the financial assistance of the Town Council and some local businesses. An event not to missed.”
