BEARD COMPETITION

We have been invited to share the venue with the Scarborough CAMRA Branch who have organised the Scarborough Beer 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… 😀

The annual fun and friendly beard competition run by members of The British Beard Club will take place between 2pm and 7pm on the day. You will need to have registered your beard in person at the beard competition reception table by 2:30pm on the day of competition to be able to compete. Entry Fee is by charitable monetary donation, any spare beer festival tokens are also accepted. All monies raised go to charity. Raising funds for and awareness of Prostate Cancer.

“But I don’t have a Beard!”

That’s ok! you can always get in the spirit of the day by making a homemade false beard and bringing it with you or Buy one of the amazing knitted beards on the knitted beard stall or join in with others getting crafty at the Beard Making and Beard drawing/painting table. Which is great fun for children and beardless men and women 😉 And yes there is a Category called “False Beard Freestyle” for you to enter your beard in 🙂

There will also be Beard portrait photographers in the venue with their cameras eager to capture your beard in all its magnificence!

Dress to impress!

Your beard will be judged with beards that will be similar to your own, sometimes the difference between two closely competing beards is how well yours is presented… a quick internet search of other beard competitions may help inspire you with your ‘look’.

There are 15 different beard style categories to choose from including Styled stubble, Moustache, Goatee, Musketeer, Sideburns/mutton chops, Business Beard(short beard), King Edward VII, Verdi, Badger Beard, Garibaldi, Full Beard Natural, Full Beard Styled with Moustache, Full Beard Freestyle, Partial Beard Freestyle, False Beard Freestyle.

Each Beard Style category will be paraded in front of the public and have a winner chosen by the Beard Judging panel, then the Beard Style Category winners go through to compete for the accolade of “Yorkshire Beard of the Year 2019” an element of which is decided by public vote.

Secret spotter prizes will also be awarded throughout the day… could you be the slug balancing champion?

After the awards and the Beard bragging rites have been handed out the celebrations will continue into the night…. well…that beer festival beer isn’t going to drink itself now is it? 😉

Everyone who enters the Beard Competition will have their beard photographed and their image placed on the “Beard Gallery Wall of the Hirsute” so the public can discuss and pick their favourites before, during and after the Official Judging of the Beard competition.

Above all have fun and enjoy your big beardy day.
