We have been invited again to share the venue with the Scarborough CAMRA Branch who have organised the Scarborough Real Ale, Cider and Arts Festival. They are delighted to welcome our Yorkshire Beard Day Beard Competition as an added attraction to the Festival. There is a Festival Door Tax of £5 and for this you get a Festival Beer Glass and a Festival Programme filled with all the beer and beard info you will need to guide you whilst you are in attendance and more importantly let you know what you’ve been drinking when you wake up the next morning… 😀
A full list of the other events and activities happening during the festival will be posted on the website and available on the day inside the festival programme.
To compete you will need to register your beard when you arrive.
On the day you will need to sign in at the Beard registration table for pre-judging to confirm the beard category you are wanting to enter is the correct one for your beard.
Those of you who are judged to be the top of your beard category will receive trophies and prize goody bags.
There will be portrait photographers in the building ready to capture your beard in all its glory.
Join the The British Beard Club before the event and you will receive additional exclusive benefit.

Whitby Whaler / Sea Captains’ Chin Warmer: beard is full on the chin and cheeks but the top lip is clean shaven. also known as a Chin Curtain or strap.. think Captain Ahab, Abraham Lincoln or the Amish…see this years poster image of a Scarborough Fisherman as an example..
Business Beard / Short Beard: a neat and tidy shaped full set beard like a well kept lawn.
King Edward VII: Classic full set beard long enough to be trimmed to naturally occuring point with a naturally trained or subtly waxed and combed tea strainer.
Verdi: short to medium sized beard, not pointy but of a rounded appearance. Waxed and curled moustache.
Badger Beard: Natural Beard of any colour that has distinct stripes.
Garibaldi: Big Bushy rounded beard so thick you can lose items in it…
Full Beard Natural: Full set that has been left to grow out as nature intended… a little cultivation/trimming can have occurred to keep it in check and a comb put through it.
Full Beard Natural with styled moustache: Full set that has been left to grow out as nature intended… a little cultivation/ trimming can have occurred to keep it in check and a comb put through it. Plus a styled moustache which can be a naturally trained one or styled with wax.
Full Beard Freestyle: Anything goes, you can style your full beard however you want, use all manner of product, colourings, hairsprays and waxes as long as the base of your creation is your naturally occuring facial hair. Let your imagination be your inspiration.
Partial Beard Freestyle: Partial beard is any beard that isn’t a full set, you can style your Partial Beard however you want, use all manner of product, colourings, hairsprays and waxes as long as the base of your creation is your naturally occuring facial hair. Let your imagination be your inspiration.
Creative, False Beard Freestyle: This is the category for those of you who can’t grow a beard, either because you are a child, usually because you are a woman or because you just naturally have a baby face 😉 Your false beard can be made to look as real as possible or as spectacularly unreal as possible and made from whatever material you happen to have laying around. Themed or artistic beards are especially good with both the Judges and the spectating crowd… dress up, have fun! take a look at the Whiskerinas for inspiration
