Here's a small corner of the internet occupied by...

Most of us are ex-members of Derby Merlin Round Table No. 998.


However, all past and present Round Tablers are welcome guests at our meetings. We maintain an active programme (see below), meeting frequently at Breadsall Priory, set in beautiful Derbyshire parkland and at locations around the city of Derby.


Pictured above: Long-serving Club Contact Steve Workman with members of our Cluster Dinner organising committee.


Our current Chairman (2015-16) is the youthful, handsome, intelligent athlete Will Ingleby (the current National Sword fighting Champion of Round Table).


We have no Secretary at the present time. Ralph Willis is merely a bloke who records the minutes at our meetings and manages some of our communications and Social Media, but he's not the Secretary so please don't ever call him that.


Past Derby Merlin RT & 41 Club Chairman Richard Silverwood is currently leading a team that is working hard to organise our major event this year, the Region 10 Cluster Dinner on September 25th at Breadsall Priory (details below).
