Peter Stemmer -Town Crier of and Ambassador for Darlington

Peter started life on Merseyside, after a colourful and interesting career which included 22 years in the army, and 20 years in retail, is now a Sub Postmaster and Town Crier for the magnificent Quaker town of Darlington. You could say West meets East. Peter has over forty years of “ standing on his hind legs” and talking to people. He has been an instructor, lecturer, master of ceremonies and public speaker. Recently Peter won a themed edition “loud for a living” of The Weakest Link

About his talks...

The talk lasts 45-60 minutes and can be lengthened and tailored to suit any audience. This talk is appreciated by all types of groups and societies from ‘all lady’ church groups to ‘all male’ dinner parties. Peter is totally self contained and uses his regalia, bell and scroll to add interest to his talks.


Costs and Geography: Fees start at £40 and are tailored to the event. I am based in Darlington in County Durham in the north east but I talk UK wide and obviously travel expenses would be negotiable.
