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 😉
The prizes that the Yorkshire Beard of the year and Yorkshire Barber of the year winners will win are stacking up…
Here we see one of two “tower of beers” contributions from the splendid folk at Scarborough Brewery.
To be in with a chance of winning this beer and many other incredible prizes you will need to take part in the Beard Competition or the Barber Competition.
