Newcastle Gosforth Round Table is a modern movement with the members at its heart, the Round Table Movement today remains true to its founder’s vision, is proud of its successes, and more than ready to welcome the next generation.
Founded to give young men a place to meet, make friends, and exchange ideas, the Round Table is non-religious, non-political and non-sectarian, and has as much to offer men today as it did when it started in 1927.
As important as what the Round Table is, is what it isn’t. If you think the Round Table is a closed, secret society that belongs to the past, you couldn’t be further from the truth. Much more than just a club or an association, the Round Table is a vibrant movement whose 8,000 members meet regularly in 600 clubs around the UK to see friends, have fun, and get involved in their local communities.
The energy that members bring to Table forms friendships, shapes lives and makes a lasting difference to many people beyond the movement itself.
