” Something to Shout About”  a talk by Jonathan Jones.

Amongst other things Jonathan is the Town Crier for Farnham in Surrey. He explained in full what duties he performed for the town as he walks the High Street every Saturday shouting the local news. He explained and showed in detail each and every aspect of his Town crier’s regalia. He also brought his famous bell.
