Speakers Forum | Soapbox Oratory

Every Sunday afternoon, soapbox orators take turns speaking on various topics from differing viewpoints on the State Library Lawns.

Questions, comments, heckling and interjections are welcome. Participation is free, and would-be speakers are encouraged to take a turn.

History:- Following its demise in 1978, two of the Yarra Bank's Speakers Corner spruikers set up the Speakers Forum in 1986 at the City Square. In 1995 the Melbourne City Council asked us to move to the State Library Lawns.

We've been there ever since.
