Hyde Park orators train young speakers in the open air

Public speaking workshop April 2013

The first in a series of workshops this week exploring the history of Speakers’ Corner and public speaking was a great success. The group, including members of the Adventurers History Club took to the streets to practice the art of oratory in central London, using their training from experienced Hyde Park speakers, Tony Allen and Heiko Khoo. Speeches were made on diverse issues including the role of authority in society, whether debt is a problem in economic terms and the importance of historical awareness to understanding yourself and others. More reports to follow as the group joins up with George Mitchell School Students and visits Speakers’ Corner this weekend.
