Beer, band, brewers, and beards (well moustaches, at least) bombarded happy revellers at the Bread and Bitter for the pub’s sixth birthday bash in December.

A party highlight came when intrepid money-raising moustache growers succumbed to the blades of barbers from Hairline.  For pub regular, Cameron Davis, the shave-off was not the treat he had expected. “Far from it, I think I’m beginning to quite like the ‘tache,” he said.  “I’m told it makes me look younger; but it’ll have to go in the name of charity.”

Over £410 was raised for Movember, the national money raising month for men’s health charities.  £130 was donated during the previous evening’s Bob Hagan quiz.

Throughout the evening, experts from Black Sheep Brewery met and chatted to customers giving out tips on beers … and raffle prizes.

The second ever appearance of the B&B’s house band, Lord Ha-Ha, completed the fun filled festivities guaranteeing that customers, music fans and the neighbourhood cats all left for bed with music ringing in their ears.
