Bearded fun

THE Drop Inn youth centre in Belper was part of the Bearded Theory festival at Kedleston Park at the weekend.

The record-breaking party with fake beards, bands, arts, crafts, weddings, DJs and general daftness, is a three-day music festival that has now firmly entrenched itself as being the first ‘proper’ festival of the season.

Every year Bearded Theory attempts to break the world record for the largest number of people wearing fancy dress beards in one place and at one time. More than 2,500 people took part in the stunt this year – 700 more than last year.
