Warwick Town Criers’ Competition

Warwick’s Town Criers’ Competition will be taking place in Pageant Gardens on Saturday 18th April 2020.

This biennial event has become an iconic event in Warwick’s calendar since the first competition was organised by Warwick Court Leet in 1995. The competition attracts Town Criers from all over the country and was hosted by Warwick Town Crier Graham Sutherland until 2015, when Michael took over the duties.

Warwick has a long history and association with Town Criers, in the mid-1500’s local philanthropist Thomas Oken was the first person to put money aside each year for the vocal services of a Town Crier or Bell Man.

Residents and visitors are invited to attend the competition in Pageant Gardens from 2pm
