This is the cake that was presented at the Oxford town crier competition. I took the photo during the lunch, between the morning and afternoon halves of the competition.
I’ve put up my photos of the Oxford town criers’ competition of July 2nd. It was a noisy and colourful day, which we finished in an open-top tour bus full of town criers in their regalia, all shaking their bells at the people on the pavements and shouting. You’d be surprised how surprised a citizen of Oxford looks when confronted by a bus full of town criers.
The chap in the last two photos but one is Anthony Church, Oxford’s own Town Crier. I drew a cartoon of him which you can see online here. There’s a copy hanging in the Bonn Square Art Café, on whose 2nd floor I have an exhibition until November 12th.
