The People’s Saturday will be held at 12 noon, on every Saturday from 5 May – 30 June. Lively discussions will be led by different members of Speakers’ Corner Committee on a variety of topical subjects.
It is hoped this will encourage others to use Speakers’ Corner as a place for spontaneous debate at any time and in the true spirit of free speech.
As part of People’s Saturday, on Saturday 30 June, which is the day of the Olympic Torch Relay and the Town Criers’ Competition, Ashia Hansen, Olympic athlete and Commonwealth Games Gold medal holder, will appear on Speakers’ Corner at 12 noon.
At 11am and 2pm on the same day competitors in the Town Criers’ Competition will shout at Speakers’ Corner, as well as at other locations across the city.
