The holder of the now ancient and honourable civic title of Town Crier is Terry Tozer, appointed on 4th February 2022, who publicises a number of engagements in Hailsham and District throughout the year.
The role of Town Crier was, since medieval times, one of the most important ways of spreading news and local bylaws, royal proclamations, market days, holidays and community events were all pronounced by a bellman or town crier.
Today, the role is a ceremonial one and Hailsham’s Town Crier will assist by opening major town events, introducing guest dignitaries to the town and introducing an element of pageantry to special occasions.
