Speakers' Corner Lichfield

Speakers' Corner Lichfield was launched in May 2009, with the help of the Speakers’ Corner Trust, to much applause. Hundreds of people joined in the celebrations which featured over 30 speeches, musical and dance performances, as well as star appearances from BBC’s Jo Malin and ex Corrie Star Chris Walker.

Today Speakers’ Corner is a site for events and activities, as well as a destination for all the community to visit and have their say on topics close to their hearts. Since the launch, a plaque has been unveiled at the site, along with a code of conduct.

Speakers’ Corner Trust helped to establish Speakers' Corner Lichfield. The trust is a registered charity established in 2007 to promote free expression, public debate and active citizenship as a means of revitalising civil society in the UK and supporting its development in emerging democracies. It has a distinguished advisory council, chaired by the Justice Secretary Rt Hon Jack Straw MP, which includes representatives of the three main political parties, the universities, the law, business, the media and the voluntary sector. SCT’s patron is the playwright, human rights campaigner and former Czech President Václav Havel.
