Speaking Engagement Service



The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway offers a speaker service for clubs and societies. We have a panel of speakers who are happy to bring a laptop and data projector (if required) to one of your meetings to give an illustrated talk about the railway. We can talk about the history of the line, its closure and restoration, recent events, plans for future expansion, facilities for the public and the work of our volunteers.


Talks can be given during the day or evening. Presentations normally last one to two hours but can be shortened if required to suit the needs of the event and the organisation concerned.


We normally ask for a minimum donation to the railway of £50 where appropriate or £1 per head if greater. In addition, for locations some distance from the railway, our speakers may require travelling expenses and, if applicable, overnight accommodation. These would always be agreed in advance between the speaker and the person making the booking.


Please contact us by e-mail or via our Contact Us pageCotswolds View (select the 'Speaking Engagements' option) to enquire about making a booking for a speaker. It helps if you can supply details of the planned event date, organisation, venue, time, likely numbers in the audience and type of talk required. We look forward to seeing you.
