About The Braw Beard & Moustache Championships

Listed Under Nights Out Events

After SELLING OUT 5 years in a row, Scotland’s original Beard and Moustache Championships are coming back for another round!

Again we have teamed up with our good friends, The Liverbeards, to put on another historic event.

Along with the championships, Scottish rock band She Burns Red will be playing a live set.

OPEN TO ALL COMPETITORS. The event is taking place in Scotland, but all nationalities are welcome to compete. We’ve had USA, Iceland, Germany, Austria, Norway, Sweden, Spain and Belgium represented at our events.

Because this event historically sells out, please enter ONE CATEGORY ONLY to give everyone a fair opportunity to compete.
