INTERNATIONAL Men’s Day is celebrated annually on 19th November. The aim is to highlight positive male achievements, while raising awareness of discrimination and health challenges.
International Men’s Day was instigated in Trinidad and Tobago in 1999.
However, there have been calls for an international day since the 1960s.

There can be different focuses each year. Previous years have focused on issues such as mental health and suicide prevention.
There are six pillars to the International Men’s Day initiative:
- To promote positive male role models; not just movie stars and sports men but every day, working class men who are living decent, honest lives.
- To celebrate men’s positive contributions to society, community, family, marriage, child care, and to the environment.
- To focus on men’s health and wellbeing; social, emotional, physical and spiritual.
- To highlight discrimination against men; in areas of social services, social attitudes and expectations, and law
- To improve gender relations and promote gender equality
- To create a safer, better world; where people can be safe and grow to reach their full potential.
The movement's organisers highlight that the event works in tandem with International Women’s Day towards gender equality.

The day seeks to remove stigmas and provoke discussions on subjects traditional deemed taboo for men to talk about.
Famous male bingo players
This International Men’s Day, Sun Bingo is highlighting the famous men who’ve made amazing contributions to the world of entertainment, and have been known to love a game of bingo!
To say thank you, we’d like to recommend a slot game / bingo room that we think they’d enjoy playing.
- Shane Richie – Brit 50 Bingo Room
This cheeky EastEnder must feel right at home when it comes to the Cockney rhyming slang bingo calls!
Shane Richie was a caller at his local hall, a caller as a bluecoat at Pontins AND the host of Lucky Numbers.

So, Shane might like to try playing in our exclusive 50-ball bingo room that celebrates iconic British sites and symbols.
There’s the London skyline in the background and the symbols include a bobby, a beefeater, a black cab, and fish and chips.
- Robbie Williams – Candy Room
Robbie Williams can be seen walking out of a bingo hall in the 2002 video for Feel.
He also used a bingo hall in the 2005 video for Advertising Space.
The Angels singer entered a charity bingo game at Hamburger Mary’s in Hollywood and won the full house prize of a Diane Merrick leopard print handbag.

In addition to that, the Let Me Entertain You singer joined a bingo game at his local hall in Stoke-on-Trent when he was visiting organisations that had benefited from his charitable foundation Give it Sum.
Given Robbie’s 2012 song Candy, Sun Bingo’s exclusive Candy Room seems like it would be a sweet treat for this singer!
- Russell Crowe – Gladiator Jackpot
Before entertaining spectators in the Colosseum, Russell Crowe was entertaining bingo players as a bingo caller!
In fact, he was the Director of Entertainment at the private resort on Pakatoa Island, off the east coast of Auckland.
HOW FAR CAN YOU GET WITH £10 PLAYING THE ELEMENT-THEMED SLOTS ON SUN BINGO?
He was fired from one calling gig for not sticking to the known bingo calls and inserting some more adult rhymes in their place.
As Sun Bingo has a slot game inspired by one of Russell’s iconic roles, it feels right that he should see if Gladiator Jackpot can entertain him.
