Hitchin Round Table, established in 1948 has been an integral part of the town for generations. We have supported countless community events over the last 70 years, including the popular Beer and Cider festival at the Rugby Club. You would have seen us in the streets of Hitchin with the traditional Santa Sleigh at Christmas; we try to visit as many houses as possible, the money raised goes straight back into the local community.
We are a social group and meet alternate Tuesdays for events, organised by members. Events are planned around members interests or for the group to try something new, we have done: Fencing, Samba Drumming, Beer Tasting, Go Karting, Pub Quizs, to name a few. Not to mention the occasional trips to the pub or out for a curry. We also have an annual away weekend, which is a surprise for all but the organiser – a fun weekend to relax with friends - this year was a trip to Berlin.
Our membership is open to men from ages 18 to 45 and is drawn from all sorts of occupations, social and ethnic groups, and backgrounds. As a member you can attend as many events as you want during the year, and get to make a difference to Hitchin by raising money for local charities. We encourage anybody who is interested to give it a go - drop us a note and call in for a couple of free events. There is no obligation to join but will have a fantastic time!
What a fantastic year!

Through our Christmas collections (with the help of Santa and his elves), plus our mulled wine stall we have raised over £4,000 which will be split between Hitchin Partnership plus Hitchin S...

We had a cracking Beer Tasting event on the 7th of November at the Hitchin Priory.
We were 21 participants from both Round Table as well as XRT and 41 club. The evening was focused on new beer styles and discussions on how these were made, debunking old beer myths and the dos and donts of beer serving.
The (excellent) beer list was as follows:
41 club trounced Round Table in the 2017 bowls event held at Riverain Bowls club in Hitchin.
The competition started well, but it was clear that 41 club members had been practising since their defeat last year, and took a strong lead after the first few ends.
The event was completed with a meal at the club.
