Glastonbury battle for Hirsute Personality 2017 as Eavis faces Corbyn

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that with Beard Week set to bristle off to a start on 26th June there is a high level of interest in the Hirsute Personality of the Year poll.

The winner is announced ahead of Beard Week on Sunday 25th June.

Jeremy Corbyn won the accolade for the first time in 2016 and now faces a challenge to retain the title.

While Corbyn is ahead in the poll, Glastonbury weekend will undoubtedly boost the chances of second placed Michael Eavis with both beard wearers expected to appear on stage together at the festival

The shortlist comprises well known beard wearers, focusing not just on their place in the public eye but the gravitas and impact their beard adds to their public image and appearance.

Unlike the Beard of the Year in December, those on the short-list don’t need to have a full-time beard. Rather they need to have been in the public eye while hirsute. Neither is the contest about who has the ‘best’ beard.

The winner of the on-line poll is announced ahead of the beginning of Beard Week 2017 on June 26th. Other Awards that feature during the week, designed to promote a positive image of beards, are the Beard Friendly Sandwich of the Year, Hirsute Broadcaster of the Year and the Beard Friendly Employer of the Year.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett, said Jeremy Corbyn v Michael Eavis is a true battle of the beards, representing everything that is best about the hirsute.
