BOOKING A TOWN CRIER
Hear ye, hear ye, if you’re looking for a superb town crier who will be heard all over town, then look no further than Scarlett Entertainment’s fantastic roster of public announcers, who are guaranteed to get the attention of guests at your event.
The original newsmen, town criers, or bellmen, would historically serve as the official spokesmen for the monarch, bringing the latest news to people at a time when the majority of the population would be illiterate. Today, town criers mainly perform ceremonial duties and are a great addition to special occasions requiring a touch of pomp and formality.
Able to perform in the classic uniform dating back to the styles of the 17th and 18th centuries, our town criers can appear at your event in authentic outfits consisting of a red and gold coat, white breeches, black boots, and a tricorne hat. Whilst ringing the historic handbell, our professional town criers will give the traditional call of “Oyez, Oyez, Oyez!” before every proclamation, giving your function that element of grandeur and custom.
With their booming voices and commanding presence, our town criers will certainly make an impact at your event, and are ideal for corporate functions, themed occasions, private parties, grand openings, premieres, brand events, festivals and more.
