Celebrating the resurgence of the Tottenham Beard


The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers which campaigns against beardism, irrational prejudice against the hirsute, has said that it will be celebrating the resurgence of the Tottenham beard, at the latest Tottenham Ploughman’s Festival, at Lordship Lane Rec. N17 on Sunday 29th May.

The campaigners say that a century ago Tottenham had a magnificent range of beards with people from diverse backgrounds across Europe.

As the century wore on a more clean-shaven culture developed, so that the Tottenham Sound of the 1960s with the Dave Clark Five, was entirely follicle free.

Now with the area changing once again and the appearance of craft brewers and cheesemakers amongst others, beards are back, from the fully organic to the carefully styled hipster variety.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, we’ll be celebrating beards today and their resurgence in Tottenham and may even encourage a little beard marination in locally brewed beer.

If you want to celebrate the Tottenham beard including organic knitted beards tweet a picture of your beard or that of a hirsute friend using the hashtag #tottybeard and we’ll RT the best and most stylish
