PRESS RELEASE
NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF ROUND TABLES
DATE: 31st AUGUST 2015
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Round Table bares all

A male-only club is set to bare all and reveal ‘It’s a Man Thing’ as part of a national awareness campaign.

Round Table is running a Discover month throughout September as it responds to a recent survey which revealed that ONLY 27 per cent of men aged 18-45 knew that it was a club just for men.

The survey, conducted last month, also revealed that just 29 per cent of the 1,111 men questioned could correctly recognise Round Table’s logo.

The month-long campaign aims to re-establish the association as ‘A Man Thing’ and a tell blokes that there is place where men can be…well men!

Round Table, whose patron in HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, is at the forefront of social and personal development, creating an environment for men to prosper in all areas of their life.

National marketing & PR officer Lee McLaughlan said: “The results of the survey show that we need to reassert ourselves as a haven for men.

“Male bonding, and the benefits that brings, has been a hot topic in 2015 and Round Table is there to play a part.

“We have more 400 clubs across Great Britain and Ireland offering enormous opportunities to do more and we urge men to find their nearest event or club and get involved. Round Table really is a man thing!”

A series of free events across the country backed by a social media campaign and its first ever promotional videos will profile Round Table and the wider benefits of ‘male bonding’.

Discover month will be officially launched in the birth place of Round Table – Suckling House in Norwich, which is now called Cinema City and will premiere the promotional videos, produced by Media Trust.

A full list of events – ranging from a bushcraft night in Billericay to segwaying in Perth – can be found at www.roundtable.co.uk/discover-round-table and by using the #discoverroundtable on social media.

Known as a social club with a conscience, Round Table plays a focal part in many communities across the country. Its clubs organise more than 100 fireworks displays every November, runs a number of the country’s best beer festivals and is a community partner with BBC Children in Need. In the past year its clubs raised more than £2m for good causes.

Round Table is an international organisation, present in more than 50 countries across the world. Spain, Canada and Russia are amongst the latest nations in the process of opening new clubs to add to the 34,000 members on the planet.
