“Alan Myatt has been a Crier to commerce, industry and heritage for many years. He is highly professional and has an extensive repertoire of characters and costumes. He is an extremely colourful personality and is very well known for his larger than life presence and approachability. I think it can safely be said that Alan is a tourist attraction in his own right! He has assisted the City of Gloucester on many civic and ceremonial occasions and has always met our requirements with a great deal of pride and efficiency.”
Theresa Morello, Gloucester City Council
“Over the years, Alan has proved to us that he is not only exceptionally hard working, reliable and diligent, he is also totally committed to making sure that any promotion he is involved in is a success. When he first started to work with us, it was as a Town Crier. Since then, his flexibility has meant that he now appears in many guises – from Old MacDonald to Uncle Fester; from Mad Eye Moody to Hagrid; from Dr Watson of Sherlock Holmes’ fame to John Bull. Alan is a true professional and a wonderful person too!”
