Lincoln & Lincolnshire

About us

Welcome to the ESU Lincolnshire Branch. We cover Lincolnshire and also have a number of members and supporters from Nottinghamshire. Lincolnshire is a large, friendly county with a relatively small population but we have an active branch which focuses on quality of events rather than quantity.

In any one year, we hope to have five to six events which would include the UK Public Speaking Competition, talks from interesting speakers, the AGM which includes presentations from branch scholars from the previous year, an evening at Doddington Hall sculpture exhibition, the Lincoln Book Festival and a black tie dinner.

We aim to raise money to assist school children in the art of speaking and listening through the Discover Your Voice programme. Do please consider joining us, you will be very welcome.
