Beards of Manchester is a calendar featuring the city and some of its hairiest inhabitants.

Beards of Manchester was looking for 12 magnificent beards for the 2011 calendar, which is now available at various outlets in Manchester (for details see here). We asked Mancunians to snap a picture and submit it to our beard gallery. By late September 2010, the Beards of Manchester had received a stunning 209 beard photos. The “beard team” (Chris Horkan and Samantha Bail) picked their favourite beards and invited them (and their owners) to a photo shoot with Manchester-based photographer Gill Moore.

The calendar was launched on Thursday 21 October with an exhibition at Common on Edge Street. All profits of the calendar sales go to the Lifeshare charity, which supports homeless people in Manchester and Salford. The exhibition will be on at Common bar until early December 2010.
