Visit us

Visiting our club is “obligation free” – come to as many meetings as you like free of charge. Contact us to let us know you’ll be coming, or just turn up! It’s that easy.

What to expect

We provide all our visitors with a “Welcome to Toastmasters” pack which includes information about the organisation, our club, membership costs and how to apply to become a member.  There is also no need to bring anything … other than a notepad and pen if you wish to take notes.

Our meetings run from 7pm – 9.30pm, including a 10 minute break for tea and snacks. Meetings involve a combination of impromptu speaking as well as rehearsed speeches, speech evaluations and a short business session for the smooth running of the club. As a first-time guest you will be invited to say a short hello at the start of the meeting and to let us know what you thought of the meeting at the end. You will be offered the opportunity to speak impromptu if you want to, but there’s no pressure!
