The British Beard Club is the First and Original social meeting group for beard growers, their partners and families of The British Islands. We encourage, support and discuss the growing, maintenance and styling of beards and other facial hair, making new friends, enjoying good food, real ales and good conversation about all subjects. Our 669 members come from all walks of life.
The British Beard Club is a non-political, non-orientated Unincorporated Charitable Association of Beard Aficionados giving support, friendship, and advice to anyone who wants to grow a beard, has just started to grow theirs, or who has been growing a beard for years.
Despite various attempts at moustache and sideburns Ian finally came to growing a full beard on his 30th birthday when he simply stopped shaving and has never shaved since.
Belonging to a profession which eschews any form of facial hair he was lucky to operate as self-employed having already left the corporate world.
Although his beard will break no records nor win championships he feels it is a fair example of a proper beard and goes with his slightly 'recherché' reputation friends and family have come to know and love!
