how it all started

Our mission is to provide a warm friendly and supportive club for owners and enthusiasts of Beards and all things related”.

Lee Andrews #BMG

Beard Master General

from HUMBLE BEGININGS...

How it all started

Lee Andrews aka the #BMG was invited onto the page with 32 members.. Within a few weeks he started to introduce the term “brother” and went on to arrange a local social gathering. Subsequently, Lee was made an Admin on the page. Over the coming months he updated the club logo and values and the direction of the club was born as was the mantle of #BMG.

Over the coming years the club membership grew exponentially, the passion and belief of its members in the values being sacrosanct. #BMG by this time had enrolled a capable and well respected team of Admins, moderators and Ambassadors who all work tirelessly to ensure the smooth running and quality of our communal space.

The club name #ibeardclub was introduced the #BMG in 2017 and is an action not just a title, and anyone could say proudly … I … BeardClub. The personalities within the Admin and Moderator team is one of the most popular elements to our family.

We have community standard competitions and live videos our Club has evolved into a great fun place to be. #ibeardclub has hosted and been part of a number of UK Beard Competitions and the culmination of years of commitment towards holding great fun charity events we were awarded Host-hood of the British Beard and Moustache Championships which was the highest honour possible for our family.

This website is the next chapter in our growing history and reputation and is a major landmark for us as we go forward in offering our members the best social environment.

Our mission is to provide a friendly club for owners and enthusiasts of Beards.
