The Lowry Hotel is hosting a free men’s health check and Manchester’s first-ever ‘Shave-athon’ to support Movember

Fancy a trim or a check-up? This one's for you.

Male health is something we still overlook far too often and there can be lots of stigma surrounding both men’s mental and physical health, so with that in mind, The Lowry Hotel’s spa and wellness centre is teaming up with Movember to help promote the charity and their important work.

To celebrate the end of Movember 2023, The Lowry and RE:TREAT will be holding Manchester’s first-ever ‘Shave-athon’ event, where blokes can turn up to the luxury city centre hotel to give their moustaches a free trim or go clean-shaven after 30 days of wearing face fur.

Better still, given the organisation’s unwavering commitment to men’s health, the spa will also be hosting a ‘Ball-athon’: a.k.a. free testicular scans to anyone concerned about any lumps, bumps or who simply fancies getting a quick check-up.

And don’t worry, the shaving will be carried out by male grooming experts and the basic ball observations done by a registered healthcare professional.

While the event is completely free to attend, those who turn up will be encouraged to donate to the charity, no matter how small the contribution. This isn’t a Tesco advert but when it comes to stuff like this, every little bit really does help.


For anyone hesitant, all scans are completely confidential and non-invasive too, not to mention carried out within the privacy of The Lowry’s award-winning RE:TREAT treatment rooms, with medical reports able to be passed on to your GP if required.

The Movember Foundation marked its 20th anniversary this year and has raised well over £400 million for men’s health causes since it first began. Events are just yet another example of the amazing work they’ve been doing for two decades now.
