sidfestbeard competition entries 2017

SidFestBEARD Competition WINNER 2017

In our inaugural Sidmouth Folk Festival Beard Competition, sponsored by Blue Beards Revenge, we had a Brexit pleasing “dozen” entries…

Contenders came from far and wide across the nation and there could well have been a couple of international entries with the fine aroma of herbs and spices that filled the air this year.

Each contender had to bring their beard along and have a photo taken by Phil the Barber on Church Street… then we shared them on Phil’s CT Shave Shop Facebook Page and his Instagram and contenders were invited to get their pals to “like” or “simply love” their photo… the one with the most likes & loves won the day…

Martin PaperMoon SidFestBeard Competition Winner

And our winner, with 41 points, 13 loves on Instagram and 28 likes on Facebook is… Martin from Paper Moon who was also our first entry, walking into the barbers as Phil and I were working out the mechanics… and you know what they say, “the early bird catches the worm” … we did wonder what that was wiggling about in his undergrowth 😉

So what’s in the Blue Beards Revenge prize pot this year Phil?

And what does our winner think?

And as news spread they began dancing in the streets and even in the River Sid!

And the band played on…

Celebrating into the early hours…

You’ve got to be in it to win it folks… better luck next year…

Thank you.
