You will be happy to know we have a table set aside for you to doodle, draw, sketch and do your colouring-in of beards and bearded people.
This year you will be able to enter your beard drawings, doodles, paintings and colouring-ins to a competition and win some lovely Art and Illustrated book based prizes.
First prize is the signed book “Grandad’s Secret Giant” by the amazingly talented Illustrator and author David Litchfield. Some of you may know him as the author/illustrator of “The Bear and the Piano”
Entries can be submitted throughout the day from 10am onwards and a winner will be chosen at 4pm on Sunday 11th March in the Cabaret Ballroom of the Grand Hotel, Scarborough.
Those of you who are beard aware may notice Grandad’s Secret Giant is wearing a full beard with styled moustache… and may even with a little tidy up and a comb through be able to enter it into the Verdi category of the Beard Competition 😉
