Winston Churchill public speaking competition

Date Posted: 20/11/2014

Blenheim Palace will be holding its fourth Winston Churchill public speaking competition for schools next year.  

The project aims to bring school groups to Blenheim Palace to learn about Sir Winston Churchill and to develop their skills in public speaking.

As part of the project, students will visit Blenheim Palace for a tour concentrating on the life and career of Sir Winston Churchill and for a series of master classes in public speaking.  These classes will use the speeches of Sir Winston Churchill as a starting point.  

As 2015 sees the launch of the English Speaking Union’s new competition for KS4 and 5 – The Winston Churchill Cup for Public Speaking – Blenheim will be concentrating on younger students.

Its competition will have two categories; one for Primary schools, years 5 and 6; and one for Secondary schools, years 7 and 8.

The provisional date for next year’s Winston Churchill Public Speaking Competition is Tuesday 17th March and it will take place in The Orangery at Blenheim Palace.
