William Morris joins London Beard Week poll for best ever London Beard

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that William Morris has joined the poll for the best ever London beard as part of the first ever London Beard Week which began on 4th August.

William Morris, one of the best known Victorian socialists and designers spent much of his early life in Walthamstow and later was associated with Hammersmith.

The week is a celebration of London, now one of the most beard friendly Capital cities in the world, and of London’s great hirsute heritage from Charles Dickens to Karl Marx.

The week coincides with CAMRA’s Great British Beer Festival at Olympia and the wider London Beer City events because the campaigners say that a rise in the interest of craft beer in London, there are now over 100 breweries within the M25, has also led to a massive increase in beard wearing.

As part of the week the BLF is running a poll to find the most impactful and impressive figure with a beard who is associated with London.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, the Capital has had some great beards in the past few hundred years but who best represents the London Beard?
