Men of all ages welcome, so come along; bring a friend, neighbour or colleague and enjoy a good breakfast and thought provoking speaker.

Speaker in conversation

Breakfast table


Everyone is offered fruit juice on arrival. At approximately 8.25 everyone is seated, the breakfasts are served and grace is said.  Then at 9.00 a speaker gives a talk for 15 to 20 minutes on their chosen subject followed by a question and answer session to finish the entire breakfast promptly at 9.30am.

The breakfast comprises fruit juice (usually a choice of two), followed by a full cooked English breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausages, black pudding, tomato and mushrooms (there is no choice as everyone is given a portion of everything).  Rolls, butter, marmalade and copious quantities of tea and coffee are already on the tables for everyone to help themselves. Conversation is usually lively!

As always, our guest speakers have given us plenty to think about.  If you would like to recommend a guest speaker (or be one yourself) please email Michael Moore as we would be delighted to hear from you.

The cost of attending Men's Breakfast is only £5 (except for the speaker who has a free breakfast!).

We usually finish the year with a surplus of donations (once we have covered our food costs) and this is donated to one local and one overseas charity.

Men (of all ages) welcome.
