On the 29th January, the fifth Annual Beard day will be taking place at the Rose and Thistle pub, Argyle Street, Reading.

This years special Millennium Theme is 'Elderly Religious Prophets', with participants invited to attend dressed as Elderly Religious Prophets from days gone by. Traditional Beard Day Events, such as the 'Gout Egg and Spoon Race' and the 'Port and Cheese Challenge' have been replaced by special millennium events including the 'Religious Prophet Sack Race'.

After the success of the band / football excursion last year, we will once again be taking the Band to the Madjeski Stadium, to watch Reading v Colchester, where Band and Beard wearers are to gather under the scoreboard in the East Stand.

All are welcome to attend, as long as they observe the rules of the event.

Suggested outfits:

One eyed UFO cult leader, Iranian Ayatolla, Old Testament Besandled Beardface, Greek (or Russian) Orthodox Priest, Wizard, Soothsayer, Sikh Warrior, Muslim Visionary.

Please not that despite the spiritual nature of this even, the normal rules still apply:
