On Saturday 4th October 2014 I was pleased and honoured to make a photographic record of Speakers Day which was held in New Romney, it was an amazing day that included a mix of pomp and pageantry and celebratory music.
The office of Speaker is an ancient jurisdiction and an honour that has been bestowed in political and civic life since as far back as the 12th Century. The office of Speaker of the Cinque Ports has traditionally been rotated amongst the five head ports and two antient towns.
I have also created a page of the daly with a bit more history of Speakers Day, more images will be added soon.
