London Beard Week- Jeremy Corbyn & Charles Darwin join Best Ever London Beard vote

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that interest in the second London Beard Week which ends on 11th August is bristling

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 wider beer related events associated with it. The campaigners say that a rise in the interest in craft beer in London, there are now over 100 breweries within the M25, has 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 or has been associated with London.

The poll ends at midday on Friday with the winner announced on Saturday. In the final period of voting write-in votes have seen Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and naturalist Charles Darwin join the poll

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, there has been huge interest in the Beard of London poll. Karl Marx leads, but can Charles Darwin of Jeremy Corbyn shave him for the title
