Our Town Crier

Town Crier Christine Igot

A Town Crier was appointed by the civil authorities, often the Mayor, to keep the citizens informed of matters of national and local importance – anything from Royal events, wars, taxation, and minor misdemeanours, even lost dogs.

The Town Crier, being a true, trusted Royalist, was also often empowered to uphold the law. In fact, it was once a treasonable offence to assault or interfere with a Town Crier in the execution of his duty.

Today, our Town Crier provides a warm welcome to visiting dignitaries in addition to delivering dozens of proclamations annually on behalf of the Town of Annapolis Royal.

Always available for local events Christine Igot is a wonderful representative for the Town of Annapolis Royal. (photo courtesy of Andrew Tolson)
