Welcome To Holborn Speakers

  • I want a safe environment where I can improve my public speaking.
  • I want to improve my confidence before an audience.
  • My speeches are bland and dull – how do I inject some passion?
  • I want to become an effective communicator.
  • I would like to make a living from public speaking.

Does any of this sound familiar? If so, Holborn Speakers can help. We are a public speaking club that is affiliated with Toastmasters International, a non-profit organisation. There are more than 11,000 affiliated clubs worldwide with over 215,000 members. Our mission is to provide a supportive environment for people to practise and improve their public speaking, communication and leadership skills.

Your first (and biggest!) step to improvement is to come along to one of our meetings as a guest.


Meeting dates and venue

Our meetings are usually on the first three Tuesdays of each month, from 6.30pm – 9pm. Click here to see our upcoming meetings.

We meet in the upstairs function room at the Rugby Tavern, 19 Great James St, London WC1N 3ES. The nearest tube stations are Holborn and Russell Square which are about 5 minutes’ walk away.

Come along!

Our club thrives on guests and we have many new faces each week. We won’t make you speak if you don’t want to and we won’t try to sign you up either. In fact, we always recommend that people new to Toastmasters visit a couple of the clubs in London as a guest. Most people come back and join Holborn Speakers, so we can confidently say that we’re probably the friendliest of all the London Toastmasters clubs!

You can come as a guest as often as you like until you decide whether it’s for you or not. Most of our guests become members and we hope you will too.

Still Have Doubts?

We were all guests once, and are now glad that we turned up to Holborn Speakers one Tuesday night. It’s no exaggeration to say that Holborn Speakers has opened a new chapter in our lives.

You won’t be alone in a sea of seasoned public speakers. Besides the other guests, our newer members will also be there. They will be happy to share their own stories and reasons for joining.

We hope to see you at a meeting soon!
