Campaigners say Brian Blessed’s OBE is much deserved

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that the OBE given to veteran beard wearer Brian Blessed in the birthday honours list is both much deserved and long overdue.

The campaigners say that Blessed probably more than other living person has personified the positive aspects of beard wearing over a sustained period.

His beard and his present is unmistakable

BLF Organiser Keith Flett, we not great fans of honours lists but when one of the great beard wearers like Brian Blessed is recognised it is worthy of celebration.

The BLF has confirmed that Brian Blessed will feature on the Hirsute Personality Poll 2016 which opens on June 11th.

The winner is announced at the start of the annual National Beard Week on 27th June
