DCBMC 2016

On the evening of DCBMC 2015 people were clamouring for us to do it all again (I’m looking at you, Kay Wallage!), but all Mr & Mrs DCBMC wanted to do was drink beer and never think about organising anything ever again.

So on Saturday XX August 2016, we returned to the splendid surroundings of the Duke of Cornwall ballroom…

Again, we were fundraising for Devon Air Ambulance Trust and Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust – we raised a total of £XXXX. We also supported The Lions Barber Collective, a very worthy initiative for mens mental health issues.

We added the DCBMC Lite categories of Best Colour, Best Styled and Best Presented, and awarded Best in Show to the chap with most Lite votes overall.

And of that wasn’t enough, we continued into the evening with live music from Windjammer, Beard of Destiny and Ohio, and a marvellous time was had by all.
