Book public speakers for local talks.

For older adults, by older adults.

Helping you organise exceptional talks.

Mirthy connects public speakers with retirement homes and community clubs hosting an event. Covering everything from beekeeping to astronomy, and local history to show business, we provide the technology to search for the best talks by the best speakers. Although we welcome all ages, the majority of talks are run by and for those in retirement age, booked by social clubs like U3A and Probus or retirement home managers organising resident and community events.

"Mirthy helps older adults remain active, social and connected in their community"
