As a UK member you receive a number of further benefits. These include priority access to Dartmouth House, our beautiful London Headquarters, regular e-news updates, a copy of our Members’ magazine and invitations to special events.

As well as its regular Dartmouth House meetings and visits, the ESU London Branch supports the UK Public Speaking Competition, the London Debate Challenge and Performing Shakespeare.

Meet the Chairman

I would like to welcome you to the ESU London Branch. We are a very active Region, holding regular meetings at Dartmouth House to which we invite well-known speakers, arrange visits to places of interest in the London area and hold monthly meetings of the Book Club. Our Membership Secretary hosts a monthly coffee morning at Dartmouth House to which non-members are welcome so that they may learn more about the activities of the ESU.

The main focus of our activities is to raise funds to support many local schools who participate in the ESU activities. An increasing number of schools are taking part in the regional heats of the UK Public Speaking Competition prior to the National Final. The London branch sponsors the Performing Shakespeare Competition, which grows year on year, and supports the Discover Your Voice programme and London Debate Challenge. We have supported a Travelling Librarian and several Secondary School Exchange students.

If you would like to join us in making a difference to your local community whilst enjoying the beautiful surrounds of Dartmouth House, please contact the ESU and I shall look forward to meeting you.
