About Us

Oyez! Oyez! Oyez! Cry it about the streets! Wake the snoring citizens with the bell! Chester's town crier, David Mitchell, has published the first-ever full-length history of the roles of the town crier and bellman: 'The Word on the Street'. Oyez! The start of Chester Heritage Festival will be announced at The Cross at noon. Following his declarations for the day, join the town crier as he makes his way to the Visitor Information Centre, next to the Town Hall. Here he has more to say, in what is programmed to be a short presentation about his book. Oyez! In pre-industrial Britain, if your horse strayed, your apprentice absconded, or your child went missing, you turned to the local proclaimer to broadcast the loss and appeal for their return. If marital difficulties proved too great to bear, you could request the crier to officiate at a wife sale. Oyez! Come and hear the town crier say more about his book at the Visitor Information Centre around 12:30 in the first of the Meet the Author events during Chester Heritage Festival. He promises not to shout!
