The public speaking on the 20th and 21st February is subject to change depending on COVID-19 Restrictions and may be forced to switch to Zoom. We will keep you posted. The competitions at the offices will be done in a COVID-19 secure way so limited numbers will be allowed on site at once. Unfortunately this will mean no audiences (we could look at broadcasting them live if we have requests). Members who are in prep or competing will be the only people in the building barring the judges and stewards!

We are pleased to announce Harrowells Solicitors as our main sponsor for the second year running. We thank them for their continued support.
