Speech Night is a community event in Newcastle that happens every 6 weeks or so. The night involves 3-4 people giving short speeches on any topic they want, though something that they are not a recognised expert in. Each speech is followed by a short Q&A with the audience. People can talk about their passions, their experiences, their ideas. It is a very casual vibe and very enjoyable!
We are always looking for more people to come along and listen, and also to give speeches. Come along and check it out.
(There is a facebook page called Speech Night that you can "like" if you keep up with what's going on or make comments.)
