The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that the musician Dave Swarbrick, who has died aged 75, has been appointed to the Beard Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame, a virtual listing, consists of a range of hirsute public figures, both alive and deceased, whose beard has had a distinctively positive impact in the public sphere.

It currently includes Richard Attenborough, Tony Benn, Acker Bilk, Brian Blessed, Frank Dobson, Bob Dylan, Jeremy Paxman and Spike Milligan amongst others.

It is the highest honour a beard wearer can attain

The campaigners say that while Swarbrick didn’t always have a fully-fledged beard he was invariably stylishly hirsute and was an iconic figure in post-1945 facial hair wearing.

BLF organiser Keith Flett said, you could almost say that Swarbrick pioneered the hipster beard and we pay tribute to him by appointing him to the Beard Hall of Fame
