Knighton Town Crier Festival

A traditional cry has been heard loud and clear from the Town for the past nine years as crowds gather for an unusual competition aiming to find the nation's best Town Crier.

The criers travel the length and breadth of Britain for the chance to take part and be crowned the winner. Up to twenty Town Criers in full costume gathered again at Knighton Church Hall on the morning of Saturday 17th August 2013 for the annual 'Welsh Border Invitation' competition. They proceed down Broad Street led by Knighton's host Town Crier and Knighton Town Silver Band. The competition then gets underway with a home cry followed by a themed cry in the afternoon. Admission is free.

There is no Town Crier Festival in 2014
