BBMC2018 Newsletter October 2017

Just a few lines to let you know things are progressing in terms of the planning of the British Beard & Moustache Championships 2018.

The venue, Empress Ballroom, Winter Gardens, Blackpool has been secured. This historic hall will serve us well for the event. Serviced by several bars (with eateries in adjacent areas of the Winter Gardens complex).

We also have our headline sponsor in place; Woody’s Quality Grooming are partnering The Sandgrown Beardsmen for the event, as they did The Liverbeards in 2016. We are looking forward to their participation.

Additionally, we are in contact with several Blackpool hotels and hopeful of negotiating discounted accommodation for TBBMC2018 attendees, we’ll keep you up to date on any developments.

The Sandgrown Beardsmen

If you are local to, or visiting, the Blackpool area next weekend The Sandgrown Beardsmen will be holding their monthly meet on Saturday 24th October and you would be more than welcome. Bring yourself and a bottle/can or two from 19.00 onwards.

You’ll find us at 279 Church Street, Blackpool, FY1 3PB.

The TBBMC2018 site is a work in flux, if there is anything you would like to see on the site, or have any other suggestions or constructive criticism, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Headline Sponsor Announced

The Sandgrown Beardsmen, proud hosts of the 4th British Beard & Moustache Championships 2018, announce that the winning bid for Headline Sponsor has been awarded to Woody’s Grooming.

Woody’s were headline sponsor for the 3rd British Beard & Moustache Championships – hosted by the Liverbeards, held in Liverpool in 2016 – and were eager to be involved at a similar level for the UK’s premier beard & moustache competition once more.

The Sandgrown Beardsmen are looking forward to working with Woody’s to bring this event to Blackpool in 2018.

 

The British Beard & Moustache Championships 2018

The announcement of which UK Beard & Moustache Club had been successful in their bid to host The British Beard & Moustache Championships 2018 was made during the Wessex Beardsmen’s 4th Beard & Moustache Competition in Yeovil

After much deliberation, and what amounted to a photo finish, The Sandgrown Beardsmen found out they had been given the honour of hosting the 2018 championships.

First responses were;

The Sandgrown Beardsmen were represented at the Devon & Cornwall Beard & Moustache Championships by Brian Eva, who posted the breaking news on the Sandgrown Beardsmen’s Facebook Page. He also offered ‘huge thanks to David Hayhurst for a job well done’ in the preparation of the prospectus the club presented to the selection committee.
