Lockdown. Shave Down. Get Down.

2 minutes read time

The hairiest of months is nearly upon us, which means it's very nearly time to shave - for everyone planning to Grow a Mo for Movember must start their journey clean-shaven. For you cannot grow unless you shave!

This year we're going big and putting on a shave down like no other, powered by our very good friends Gillette. It's a match made in moustache heaven and it's taking place from 30th October to 1st Movember.

We've all traversed the last few strange months and ended up in the same place together. And togetherness is important - no one should Mo alone.

So, rally the troops, text your mates, message the group chat and open Zoom as we Lock Down. Shave Down. Get Down.

" Lock Down. Shave Down. Get Down. "


You’ve got the date and you’ve registered your Mo Space page - now lockdown your bearded mates to sign up and to do the same.

We’ve all faced some scary hair realities this year. Overgrown beards. Botched head shaves. Unplanned ponytails. It’s time to put it all behind us and refocus on the true king of facial hair: the moustache. Farewell your lockdown look and pave the way for your Movember Mo. We’re shaving down early this year and getting a head start on our fundraising.

But, before you reach for the razor, immortalise your pre-shave face with a video or pic to share on social media.

Why not grab some pizzas and make an evening of it? Shaving down is better with mates and growing a Mo with them is even better.


Join us live at 7:15pm on Friday 30th October for our big virtual community Shave down via Zoom. Full of beardy banter, hairy chat, and moustachioed musings, we’ll be getting together to say goodbye to full-face foliage and hello to our hairless chins - as we welcome some top lip topiary all in the name of men's health.

Get mates to support your shave down efforts by sharing your progress on social media - film it, snap it, share it! Don't forget to tag Movember and use #Shavedown


It's 10pm and the pubs have closed – don’t worry, we’ve got your back!

Join us back on Zoom or Facebook Live for a late-night get down party as a reward for your shaving efforts - they'll be comedy from Charlie Partridge, Dave Bibby (crowned Online Comedian of the Year 2020) with others TBC, a quiz and more to tickle your fancy - just as your moustache begins to sprout.

Remember to sign up here.
