Chris Brown is the Official Town Crier of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.
A unique role requiring a love of history, a friendly professional manner… and a seriously loud voice.
This role in the Royal Borough is all about delivering proclamations, telling people about upcoming events, warmly welcoming visitors to the borough, accompanying the Mayor and assisting at civic events and charity functions and helping promote the good name of Windsor and Maidenhead.
Chris does not charge a fee to charities for attending their events within the Royal Borough.
He has appeared at over 300 events, but if you want the Town Crier to attend your occasion, you do need to ask.
Book Chris for charity events, parades, openings, television, fairs, weddings, corporate events and anything else where you want to get noticed.
As a member of the Ancient and Honourable Guild of Town Criers, Chris fully insured when attending events.
Chris Brown was appointed as the Town Crier for the Royal Borough in 2012 and has assisted at more than 300 events. Although it is an ancient role with a long history, the borough itself only came in to being in 1974 and at that time no crier was appointed. Chris is therefore the borough’s first ever crier.
In addition to traditional ‘cries’ Chris also offers local history talks, and acting as master of ceremonies for both formal and informal events.
