Oyez, oyez, oyez...it's Garstang town crier contest time: pictures from the event

The Town Criers competition was a colourful start to the Garstang Arts and Music festival taking place in the market town until Monday.

The criers paraded through the town and were judged on sustained volume and clarity, diction and inflection, presentation and engagement, and also on accuracy.
