Movember is ‘fan-tash-tic’ at Leeds Castle

Each year, brave and selfless employees in office across the country come together, united in their commitment to fine moustachery and changing the face of men’s health.

The Movember journey requires dedication and members of staff from Leeds Castle “the loveliest castle in the world” have decided to abandon their grooming routines for the entire month and share in the experience of growing a ‘Mo’ to raise money for charity.

The mass ‘moustachiasation’ of the Castle Estate has already begun so look out for the early signs of moustaches appearing on staff members when you visit. Don’t forget to sponsor them!

In support of the Movember prostate cancer appeal, visitors can now see a giant moustache on the side of the scaffolding currently covering the Castle’s Gloriette.

As part of on-going preservation work undertaken by the Leeds Castle Charitable Foundation, a restoration project is taking place this winter and again next winter requiring a major programme of stonework repair, replacing up to 30% of the stone and pointing with lime mortar.

 The restoration project will cost nearly £1.7 million, funded by our visitors. Universal StoneLtd. a company with much experience in restoring heritage buildings will carry out the work for us.

A range of moustache themed gifts are also available in the Castle shops, including coasters, mugs, spectacle holders and moustache disguise sunglasses all priced at under £10!
