Due to the current events  regarding the Corona Virus, we need to make changes to our usual arrangements

Government advice is to not have group meetings and so our regular meetings cannot go ahead, until further notice.

The committee have therefore decided to hold online meetings for the foreseeable future.

We will send out emails to our members with login details.

If you are a member and for some reason do not get the invitation then please make contact directly.

If you are not a member and would like to join an online meeting then please use the form on this website to request deatails of how you may join us online.

This site is where we will post any information regarding changes to arrangements, so do keep checking back.

Keep calm and carry on.

Future meetings moved to be online due to the government guidlines. 

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

From the start to the present we are proud of the fact that Manchester Orators has helped hundreds of people become better public speakers and leaders.
