With prizes to be awarded in Best Natural, Best Artificial and Best in Show categories, we invite you to participate and support our Lovely Beard wearers this year. Lovely beards are welcomed to be worn by all genders and none, but must be worn on the face. Thank you.

Full details of the competition, including rules and entry form, can be found on the Lovely Beard Contest page.

We are also running a Build-a-Beard workshop at 1 p.m. on Saturday for those wishing to enter the competition. We will have plenty of artificial beards in a range of colours available for decorating with many exciting and sparkly things. The decorations and colouring products may also be used by those with natural beards!

We have reserved Syndicate Room 6 from 7 p.m. onwards for competitors to make final preparations and to check in with Pebble over the presentation arrangement.

Brutal Ballet

Time: 8.30 p.m.
Room: Middleton

Brutal Ballet are back with their amazing black lit, heavy metal soundtrack show piece, with new performers. We are excited to see what they have for us this year.

Raffle, Karaoke, and Disco

Time: 8.45 p.m. (until 1 a.m.)
Room: Middleton

We bring Saturday to a close in the best way we know, by getting over excited about the raffle and rocking out our best karaoke efforts. As it’s Pat’s birthday weekend, we will be playing some of her favourite disco tunes, along with Titancon favourites. Make your DJ requests and sign up for the Karaoke with Jon and Richard on the night.
