The MaceBearer gives talks to local groups of adults, schoolchildren, cubs and scouts, brownies and guides etc.

The Macebearer shows each group the main rooms in the Town Hall and talks about its history. Some of the Town Silver will be displayed, including the Mace and also the Mayoral robe, hat and Badge of Office. If the Mayor is available when a talk takes place, he/she will also attend.

If the Courtyard restaurant manager is in agreement, the Macebearer takes the group to see the cells at the back of the restaurant and explains how they were used in the original Police Station.

The talk typically takes no longer than one hour and once finished, the group is given some refreshments, and a Mayor Bear badge as a souvenir, if appropriate.
