About Club 9

Established in 1958, ROSTRUM CLUB 9 has long been a leader in helping people build and develop skills in communication and leadership.

Club 9 is a lively, happy and interesting group of people of all ages and backgrounds who come together once a week to entertain and inform each other whilst practising the art of public speaking and having fun. We are a mix of novice and experienced speakers who enjoy the company of visitors and new members.

Club 9 also has PowerPoint facilities, so if any students or business people need to practice their presentations before the big day, come and use us for their practice, and receive valuable feedback.

The formula is simple: LEARN - PRACTICE - ENJOY.
