About Club 9

Established in 1958, ROSTRUM CLUB 9 has been helping
people to develop skills in communication, leadership, and to
grow in confidence.

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

The formula is simple: LEARN - PRACTICE - ENJOY.
