Event description

Description

Meet men and women who enjoy ordinary, everyday things — things that are often thought of as mundane, dull, boring — but actually can be quite interesting. Meet people who have been in DMC calendars and the book Dull Men of Great Britain: Celebrating the Ordinary. We do more than watch paint dry.

"Anorak of the Year 2017.4" will be announded (".4" as we are now 40% into 2018).

Dr Sandi Mann, aka ‘Dr Boredom’, author of The Science of Boredom: The Upside of Downtime, will tell us about the benefits of boredom and her research on the Thirty Habits of Boring People.

Refreshments — wine, beer, soft drinks — will be provided.

Doors open early before we officially start at 6:00 so you can converse with other attendees and rub shoulders with dulluminaries like Kevin Beresford (UK Roundabout Appreciation Society) and Archie Workman (Cumbria’s leading drainspotter), Dave Shaw (vintage radios), Andy Down (has visited all 2,543 railway stations in Great Britain), Richard and Emily Gottfried (have visited over 800 minigolf courses, maintain meticulous records of each course and games played).

A columnist who attended our book launch in London emailed us the next day thanking us for an 'excellent evening' and going on to say most book launches are pretty dull but, oddly enough, this one definitely wasn't.

The origin and development of the Dull Men’s will be described. Its Facebook group now has over 21,000 members, dull men and women colleagues. Local DMCs chapters have sprung up, seven so far. They began in Massachusetts and now are also in Oregon, North Carolina, and Mississippi.

Special note about event cancelation: if it turns out that the number of people who sign up is too small for a meaningful event, your registration fee will be returned to your credit card.
