Devon & Cornwall Beard & Moustache Championships 2016

Bearded and moustached men from across the UK will converge in Plymouth on Saturday 6th August for The Devon & Cornwall Beard & Moustache Championships 2016.

The event is being organised by Clair and Mike Wellsbury-Nye of West Devon, and will raise funds for the Devon and Cornwall Air Ambulance Trusts.

Mike took part in the British Beard & Moustache Championships in Bath in 2014. ”I didn’t win, but that wasn’t really the point” he said “it was a really fun, friendly atmosphere, we had a brilliant weekend.”
“Mike and I recently went to a competition in Yeovil” said Clair “and there were people from all ages and all walks of life – including some dressed as a Viking, aviator, Jedi and strongman. Everyone cheers for every competitor, they just cheer that little bit louder for their friends and favourites.”

All sizes and styles of beard and moustache are encouraged to enter, and with eight categories to choose from, it’s not just the biggest beard that wins!

There are also categories for ladies and children’s handmade beards, and spectators are very welcome.

The event starts at 2pm with doors opening at midday.
