Speakers Championship:

Participate in our first ever Speech Derby to be crowned as our champion speaker.

Starting at 2:00PM be one of 25 contestants in five different groups giving a general speech. The top two in each group earn a coveted place in the semi-finals where they get to crack our ribs with a humourous speech. We will then ask the audience to select a topic which the top three will speak on during the finals.

There is a 30 minute intermission between the semi-finals and finals to allow the speakers to prepare the speeches. During this time, there will be a table topics contest with the audience as the participating contestants.

At 5:30 pm we shall then invite the three finalists back to the lectern and see the very best speakers battle it out for the chance to lift the trophy
