A motley crew of Toastmasters and guests gathered in the round to enjoy an evening of Table topics tips and demonstrations, followed by Tantalising Tall Tales.
Louise led a topics interactive workshop and showcased types of topics and how to adapt to the very terrified. Explanations of the styles were given between speakers, and audience participation was encouraged to add to the event. All of the speakers had no other roles on the night, which shows the importance of arriving early and being prepared for the event.
First up was Garth with his explanation behind him becoming a successful author
Second was Anna who explained why she kept a dragon in her house
Third was Harsheed who is a secret government agent ,with a job of putting us off travelling on Bank Holidays
Delphine did an animated demonstration about a police hat .
Cecile ,a guest, talked of her passions in life.
The most outstanding performance was that of Veselina , who spoke for the very first time, about her love of surfing ,including picture words, triads and great body language. She was a clear winner.
Tall tales included green fingered graham…..fake
Carmel’s dodgy lodger…true
Louise’s x rated canal hijack….false

Mick won with a story of how he was thrown out of church! Complete with demo at the end.
