Join us at our next event

Our new events programme is intended to engage and involve as many people as possible: members, prospective members and the general public. Here, you’ll find news of exciting talks and book launches, music performances and celebratory dinners, as well as the finals of some of our key competitions. These include the ESU-Churchill Public Speaking Competition, Performing Shakespeare and the Schools’ Mace, and are where you can see compelling examples of oracy in action.
