Knaresborough Town Criers

We may be biased, but we think our Town Criers do a fantastic job as an ambassador for our town. You can hear Mark and his deputy Andrew ‘crying’ each week at Knaresborough’s historic Wednesday Market and at community events too. 

If you would like to book them for a community event you are organising, or maybe even a business launch, please email (note that a small fee may apply for business appearances). 

Knaresborough Voice & Local Government Reorganisation

Chamber is also part of a group of community organisations that are exploring key issues relating to the future reorganisation of local government and the formation of the new North Yorkshire Unitary Authority. 

The group includes members of the new Town Council, so we’ll hopefully be singing from the same hymn sheet as a town when discussing what responsibilities we wish to see devolved from the new Unitary Authority from April 2024. 

Join the conversation at Knaresborough Voice.
