The first British Beard and Moustache Championships at Brighton Dome - Corn Exchange on September 15th 2012 was a sell-out success! We are astonished and delighted by the huge response, warm good wishes and thanks we've had from the hundreds of spectators and contestants who came to the event.
The house was full to the brim with cheering audience members, and everyone had a really great and memorable day they'll remember for a long time, and they have told us so. We saw a wonderful variety of facial hair styles, from the elegant through to the fantastic, and the competition was very stiff, which in many of the categories was quite literally true!
Britain's best Full Beards and Handlebar Moustaches were the most hotly contested styles and all the contestants in all the categories put on a really great show. The Organising team from the Handlebar Club and The British Beard Club sincerely thank all our spectators, contestants, judges, sponsors, production staff and volunteers for making the BBMC such a smooth-running and entertaining show.
