    What happens on a usual night? 

    Speeches - These are 7 minute speeches that people have prepared. These get evaluated so we can encourage and correct.

    Topics session of 2-3 minute speeches that we have to make up on the spot. One of our members picks the topics for the evening. These can be really fun because they're off the cuff, and it gives us practice at thinking on our feet!

    We also have a break for tea or coffee to get to know each other.

    This time (3rd August) we have

    Nez in the chair, speeches from the following:

    Lloyd - Tutorial - Using Props:1 Throwing your voice.

    Kerry – A1- Making a Start

    Carly – A1- Making a Start

    Martyn – A4/A5 – Use of Gestures/Use your voice. with a vote of thanks by Monika

    Rob – Mini-debate – topic announced on the night. 

    Noel running the Topics session, Des, Stephen and Helen on the evaluation team, and Barbara is general evaluator for the evening.

    Joke session – tell one or two jokes – see how you fare as a stand-up comic..

    The first two meetings are free, then if you like it we'll ask you to become a member to help cover the costs of the evening. This is only £40 for the whole year!  A bargain!!
