The British Beard Club is the First and Original social meeting group and members club for beard growers, their partners and families of our islands and overseas. We celebrate and support the growing, grooming and styling of beards and all facial hair, making new friends, enjoying good food, real ales and good conversation about all subjects. Our 377 members come from all walks of life.
The British Beard Club is a non-political, non-orientated Unincorporated Charitable Association of Beard Aficionados raising funds for charity, and giving support, friendship, and advice to anyone wanting to grow a beard, has just started to grow theirs, or who has been a long-time beard grower.
“Since beards occur naturally they should be embraced and encouraged. From the extra insulation they give - to the time, money and hassle that they save, the advantages of having a beard are many! The moustache I'm wearing now is only the third or so attempt at a really growing it out to handlebar length, but this time I decided to just go for it indefinitely (currently 15in wide).
“I've been a projectionist at an independent cinema in Liverpool for 13 years now, so consider myself lucky to have worked back in the days when every film was on 35mm.
“Was actually planning to cut the 'tache off for charity at the top of Island Peak, Nepal, on 1st Jan 2015 - but that was before becoming a TBBC member! Now I'm unsure what to do, trim it only if I reach my fundraising goal or keep it and compete next year? Besides, it may end up just being a ridiculous idea to try and shave at 20,000ft!”
