Two participants of the 2018 Oxford Beard Festival are starring in this photograph. This year marked the fifth edition of this annual tradition, which takes place in October. Beard and moustache lovers gathered in Oxford for a day to listen to music, play games and try to win competitions for the best psychedelic, hippy, 70’s and handmade facial hair! Women happily took part in the handmade beard competition, displaying carefully crafted denim beards and others. A big chunk of the festival’s profits went to Oxford Food Bank and to the Lion Barbers Collective, a charity set up by barbers to help raise awareness for the prevention of suicide.
