Welcome to our site which contains details of our club and the planned meeting dates. 

Manchester Orators was established in 2002 and became a fully chartered Toastmasters group in 2003.

The club will have been chartered for 15 years during 2018.

Please check back to learn how we plan to celebrate the milestone.

Manchester Orators have helped hundreds of people become better public speakers and leaders.
