Town Criers at the Heart of England Town Criers Championship in Alcester.

Another year, another great Town Criers Championship in Alcester, Warwickshire. On Saturday the 19th of April, in a picturesque town in leafy Warwickshire, 14 town criers came together to compete in an incredibly colourful, (and loud), contest for the Heart of England Town Criers Championship.

The results, colours and sounds can be seen below.
Mark Venables of the Alcester Court Leet, kindly attended to the video camera, whilst I took still images.
Here is a 2.5 minute video of the results. All cries from all contestants are available.
