Told: telling a town in true stories

The Stade

This town, this harbourside, these streets and streets now lost - Fancy Street, Seagate Street - packed tight with lodgings, pubs and inns, teeming with lives and life stories.

We know something of them, the worst perhap, reports of thieving and cheating of fighting, of sad and sudden deaths. Lives glimpsed, here where they were lived, of widower Thomas Cockett, of defiant ‘Chopper’ Anderson - town criers both by chance.

Why not a town crier to tell the tale?

Practicing a tradition and craft as old as towns themselves, Kevin Cooke, Town Crier of Sandwich and the Cinque Ports, will trace the buried streets, mark the lost pubs and inns and tell true stories of this town.
