About Martin Wood Town Crier for Shrewsbury...

I am based in Shrewsbury, though I am happy to travel throughout the UK. I have been the Town crier for Shrewsbury, Shropshire for the past 30 years and over that time I have spoken to many groups:- W.I`s Rotary, Lions, Age Concern and many more.

About my talks...

My talks are light hearted and humorous, two being ‘stand alone’ – just me and my bell! and two are power point presentations. I supply all necessary equipment for the power point talks, and can confirm that it is PAT compliant. I also bring along a screen if there isn’t one available at the venue – though a clear wall make a very good ‘screen’.


My fee is £40 plus travel expenses

The trials and tribulations of the Worlds Tallest Town Crier!!


Note from Dianne: Martin is the tallest Town Crier in the world – he towers an incredible 7′ 2″ -for those of you who have gone metric, that is 218.4cm. So, along with Martin’s talk, the audience will get to meet the tallest person they’ve ever likely to meet in their life.

Group Outing?

If any club or society would like a day out in Shrewsbury then I can meet them for a walking tour and arrange for them to have a meal before letting them loose on the shops!
