As the first full week of the month of the mo comes to a close, the moustaches are beginning to show through. Patchy growths are developing into fully fledged handlebars, pencils and toothbrushes and are desperate for activity. But where can you showcase your new facial hair? We’ve rounded up the top moustache events this month:
Whiteleys Shopping Centre, open until Saturday November 10
This is essentially moustache heaven. An immersive theatrical journey though the desires of the modern moustache bearer, from pub games to strength contests, they also feed, water and groom you. Not to be missed.
Mo Fun Run
Sunday November 11, 10am at Battersea Park; Sunday November 25, 10am Greenwich Park
In homage (probably) to the famous 118 men, get your shortest shorts, your thickest skin and your moustache on and get down to Battersea or Greenwich Parks where Mo Running is taking place, raising extra sponsorship for Movember’s prostate cancers. Space for the races is incredibly limited, but support is always needed, or if you’re really desperate you could flee the capital to run elsewhere.
For the Love of Mic Movember Special
Friday November 23, House of Wolf
While the ‘gentlemanly’ aspect of the moustache is much celebrated in Movemberland, For the Love of Mic is examining the link between moustaches and rap at this free night. MC Hammer masks, fake moustaches and rap battles to be expected.
Gillette pop up barbershop
10 Newburgh Street, open 7 days a week until November 30
Any sort of organised event is a bit useless without a pop up something these days, and Movember is no different. Gillette have thus set up the ‘best a mo can get’ barbershop off Carnaby Street to pamper your moustache, as well as have a drink and bond with with other mo-sporting bros, and mo-loving sistas.
Mo Bros End of Movember Party
November 30, 7pm, Old Billingsgate
All good things, of course, must come to an end. By the end of this month, there will be an estimated 200 metres of extra facial hair ready to be shaved off, and we’ll be sorry to see it go. This fact may need forgetting (not least because it isn’t true), so why not do so at a big party organised by the Mo Bros themselves to celebrate all the fantastic work done by mo cultivators this month?
