As is traditional with beard and moustache competitions, there’s an official pre-party the night before the big day – because obviously we don’t have enough chance for drinking in just one day!
This year, our first time in Exeter, Yvan Williams of The Oddfellows has offered to host us and we couldn’t be more pleased. The Oddfellows Exeter is the original home of Beard & Tonic, scene of many a beardy (and beery!) night with the South West Beard Club crew, so Mr & Mrs DCBMC are very much looking forward to returning there.
It’s not just about the beer, they also do cocktails and have an impressive food menu, and Yvan’s promising some special things to really make the night go with a swing!
You’ll find The Oddfellows at 60 New North Road, Exeter (EX4 4EP for Google Maps). It’s just down the hill from John Lewis, on the opposite side of the road.
So we’ll see you there from about 8pm, yes? And then we can sort out a sweepstake on the number of hungover competitors on Saturday…
