European Town Criers' Championship Dinner
In Tavistock Town Hall on 15 July 2000

Charter Ceremony Criers' Championship Day Home

I apologise for the poor quality of these pictures. There was very little light, so I have had to enhance them digitally, which is never entirely successful.

Tavistock's Town Hall is a first rate setting for a large dinner and very much in keeping ...
... with the colourful costumes ...
... of the Town Criers and their ladies.
Trophies were awarded.
The overall champion was Michael Jones, JP, Town Crier of St George's Bermuda and Whitchurch Canonicorum, Dorset.
Abigail Pine, the harpist who played during dinner, posed for photographs with Michael Jones
Tavistock's Town Crier, Bob Rose.
Wladyslaw Stefan Grzyb came from Lublin, Poland to take part ...
... bringing with him an interpreter, as few of us speak much Polish in Tavistock.
After dinner, entertainment was provided ...
... by a troupe of ...
... Appalachian Step Dancers.
The Mayor of Tavistock, Cllr Mrs Judith Williams looks on with her husband, Gerald ...
... as do Peter Dauncey and Bill Malin, respectively Chairman and President of the Ancient and Honourable Guild of Town Criers.
