SWBC rebrand

Over the weekend swbc has had talks, and that has led to a major rebrand with a complete new logo design thanks to @brandingdesigngeek.


The SWBC Lite logo will continue with the current logo.

A messege from mr DCBMC

So, in the process of inquiring whether the Olde Ale House in Truro would like to host a repeat of last year’s Lite competition, I seem to have accidentally booked something for Saturday 18 February. Oh well, we’ll have to actually do something now! 😀

For those of you who don’t know, me and Clair suggested that we make them SWBC Lites this year, and we’re hoping it’ll get the club’s name out there and encourage even more people to join up. Terry and Kris are gonna need a pretty big army to take over the whole southwest penninsula, and run it as their own personal kingdom, right?

Other than the name change (and new medals, I guess?) it’ll be the same format. Less structured than the big comps, just turn up on the day, drink, and maybe win a prize.

All the proceeds go to charity, and Terry suggested the The Lions Barber Collective. I’m happy with that – what does everyone else think?

We’ll get details up dreckly. Anyone know if we can promote events made on this page to the wider FB public?

DCBMC ..Help needed

The DCBMC (Devon & Cornwall Beard and Moustache Championships) need help from the SWBC.

Promotion – both online and flyering

Raffle prizes from local companies

Local traders – interesting local companies whose product range suits our audience (eg clothes, gifts, sweets, cake). If anyone knows someone who might be suitable, send over their details – we haven’t confirmed cost and table size for traders yet, but will soon.

Someone child-friendly to hand out treasure hunt prizes (ideas for the treasure hunt would be great, too)

Helpful humans on the day – ticket desk (day and evening), merch stand, selling raffle tickets, rattling charity collection tins, nudging competitors when their category is called, helping with the treasure hunt…

The more warm bodies we have available, the less each person has to do – about 6 would be awesome.

If you want some flyers to hand out or stick up just give Mike or Clair a shout.

If you can help out with any of above me send a messege to either Clair Wellsbury-Nye or Mike Wellsbury-Nye

DCBMC is upon us

Tickets for the 2016 Devon & Cornwall Beard & Moustache Championships are now on sale!

It’s going to be pretty much the same as last year, with a bit extra – we’ve booked some bands to play in the evening, so we can keep hold of you (and your wallets) a bit longer to put even more in the charity pot.

Fundraising for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust and the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust – the airlines you never want to fly with!

Our lovely venue, The Duke of Cornwall Hotel, are offering discounted accommodation packages for anyone attending DCBMC:

Single Room
£80.00 Bed and Breakfast
£105.00 Dinner, Bed and Breakfast

Standard Double or Twin Room
£90.00 Bed and Breakfast
£140.00 Dinner, Bed and Breakfast

Superior Double or Twin Room
£110.00 Bed and Breakfast
£160.00 Dinner, Bed and Breakfast

To book, call 01752 275855 and quote ‘Beard and Moustache Event’ to get the discounted rate.

Prices are per room per night. The hotel is very popular with tourists in August, so book ASAP to avoid disappointment*. You do not need to pay at time of booking, but the hotel will take card details to guarantee your reservation.

Look forward to seeing you there!


*To be honest, this applies to all Plymouth hotels and B&Bs – the city was pretty much sold out last year. Book soon!
