Rugby Player, Actor, Journalist, Politician in Best Beard of Wales 2021 vote

The annual vote which will determine the St David’s Day Beard of Wales, the Welsh beard that offers the most positive national image, has reached a final beard off.

The first round saw journalist Martin Shipton and rugby player Jake Ball shave Sir Tom Jones and Carwyn Jones to reach the final vote from  February 25th. Voting on Round Two saw actor Michael Sheen & MS Hefin David bristle to victory over James Dean Bradfield and Vaughan Gething.

The Beard Liberation Front says that images of St David suggest that the Welsh Saint himself may have had an organic beard

Welsh rugby prop Adam Jones won the Award in 2013, voted for by BLF supporters, just shaving former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams. Another rugby player Leigh Halfpenny won in 2014. In 2015 the Award went to Thee Faction musician Chris Fox in 2016 footballer Joe Ledley and in 2017 to Charcutier Illtud Llyr Dunsford, with Chris Fox winning again in 2018. In 2019 journalist Grant Tucker shaved the opposition to claim the accolade. Michael Sheen won in 2020 and went on to share the Beard of the Year Award with Michael Rosen in December 2020.

It is the ninth time the Award has been given following the traditional UK Beard of the Year at the end December each year and the BLF says it is a mark of Wales as a modern nation on St David’s Day that beards are now playing an increasingly significant role in national life.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, The Best Beard of Wales will be named on St David’s Day. Will it be a close shave this year?

There were two preliminary rounds leading to the final  Best Beard of Wales 2021 vote between 25-28 February
