The Wessex Beardsmen were founded early in 2013 in the South West of England over a pint by a group of like minded hirsute people to support each other, enjoy social occasions and enter beard and moustache competitions often raising money for charity in the process.
We have hosted 5 Beard and Moustache competitions since 2013 and some of our members were on the committee that organised and ran the British Beard and Moustache Championships in 2014 in Bath.
Our members can normally be found at Facial hair competitions around the UK and internationally, our latest being a jolly across to Antwerp in May ‘19 representing the Club at the World Beard and Moustache Championships.
Registration for the next world championship in Auckland, New Zealand for 2021 will soon open, as always we’ll be there.
We have been chosen to host the 2023 WBMC, which will be in Bristol – further details will be available as soon as we have them!
We are a non-profit organisation that enjoys raising money and supporting charitable causes. In the past we have made substantial donations to The Make-A-Wish Foundation UK, Mind, The Lions Barber Collective, The Yeovil Freewheelers (Blood Couriers) and Children’s Hospice South West.
This year we are raising money for Zellweger UK. Our 6th Beard and Moustache Competition is on April 18th – Tickets are available NOW!
