TITLES AND AWARDS
Town criers hold gatherings throughout the world at which a welcome riot of noise and colour is displayed. With support from East Riding of Yorkshire Council to attend such gatherings, Michael has achieved notable success:
- Three times World Champion
- Five times British Champion
- National Champion
Whilst Michael is proud to have won the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee 2012 British Championship held in Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire, he is particularly proud to have won the 2nd Millennium World Town Crier Championship in the year 2000 held in Gent, Belgium. This is a title he owns for a thousand years until the year 3000. Come the 3rd Millennium, the only way he can defend his title is to send a recording of his voice along with his ashes to wherever in the world it will be held!
