Town Criers’ Competition 2018

People from all over England descended upon Lichfield to take part in the Town Criers’ Competition 2018.

As sponsors of the event, John German Estate agents requested a town crier to replace the traditional cry of “Here Ye, Here Ye (Oyez, Oyez, Oyez” to “No Sale, No Fee”!

Sarah Hill, Sales Director in Lichfield commented: “The Town Criers’ Competition is very loud and extremely popular with the tourists. The traditional pomp & ceremony is brilliant. A highlight of the day was seeing nine year old Ollie Day take part as the youngest town crier in the world.”

David Leytham, Mayor of Lichfield commented: “Thank you to John German for their kind sponsorship of the Town Criers’ Competition. It was a great event and fitted really well with the Festival Market. Everyone enjoyed the spectacle which we couldn’t possibly do without the support of local businesses and organisations like yourselves.”
