Come and help choose the best Town Crier for Plymouth’s Mayflower 400 celebrations. Who will have the loudest, proudest cry?

The competition starts at 7pm. Each entrant will perform 3 elements and a panel of judges, plus the public, will choose the winners.

The winners will carry out their duties at a range of events around Plymouth during the Mayflower 400 commemorative year which begins in November.

Anyone arriving early can also enjoy a Morris Dancing display at 6pm.
