    Speakers’ Corner Committees, as groups of volunteers, do not necessarily have to take the main burden in organising events. Every community has a huge range of membership, interest, community and voluntary organisations which, particularly at certain times of the year, are looking for platforms on which to promote their causes or mount their campaigns. Networking is the key.

    With a little planning and a handy checklist, organising events ought not to be too daunting. This guidance also includes basic advice on public liability issues which could arise in a limited range of circumstances.

  • Conducting Events

    Freedom of expression is not something which should be constained by rules, other than the law. But a little common sense planning can help to ensure that everyone enjoys an equal right to exercise their rights without infringing those of others.
