Last Thursday we launched the 2011 Beards of Manchester calendar and exhibition. We exceeded Common’s Kestrel Suite capacity several times over, with attendees arriving in their dozens to view the prized specimens on show. We were also honoured with the presence of all but two of the chosen beards – with several of our models agreeing to sign autographs for eager beard-hunters.
We’d like to thank all who attended our launch night, which massively exceeded expectations. We’d like to thank those who bought calendars, beard badges, beard cakes (donated by North Tea Power), and those who donated to our chosen charity, Lifeshare. Huge thanks also go out to our excellent photographer Gill Moore, our friends at Common for their work in setting the exhibition up, and of course the bearded ones themselves. The exhibition will be up until well in to December, with Common being our primary calendar outlet. Stay tuned for more information about our other outlets.
