Town Crier and Toastmaster
Hull, Yorkshire and beyond...

In 1996, to celebrate its reformation from the county of Humberside to East Riding of Yorkshire, an appointment for a Town Crier was created to help put the new county on the map. Michael auditioned and hasn’t looked back since. In addition to civic and community duties, his corporate work led to travelling the world and becoming the very first Hollywood Town Crier.

Give Michael a bell and he’ll give you a yell, oyez oyez he will.
