STAGE STRUCK!

Come to Barberfest in Brighton on 10 July for a day at the seaside, with some creativity and business advice thrown in!

Barberfest is taking over the Hilton Metropole with two inspirational stages, a live competition area and a plethora of products, tools and business support. So whether you are a freelance barber, starting out on your career or looking to take your business to the next level, Barberfest has everything you need under one roof!

Start the day at the Creative Stage with names such as Tariq Howes, Danny Robinson and Simon Shaw showcasing their latest collections and techniques, before moving onto the Business Stage where you will find Tom Chapman, David Raccuglia and Hayden Cassidy share their experiences and knowledge in an up-close-and-personal atmosphere, giving you the chance to ask questions and learn as much as you can from the experts.

Come and see the future of the industry battle it out in our Raw Talent competition, brought to you by Mike Taylor Education and sponsored by VTCT. Support the competitors in the Freshers, Graduate and Post Graduate categories who have already got through an intense selection process to get this far.

“Barberfest is the ultimate barber getaway, a lovely weekend in Brighton catching up with fellow barber professionals, networking and learning. Raw Talent is the perfect platform for students and apprentices to showcase their talents and an opportunity to be discovered,” explains Mike Taylor. The day will also give you the opportunity to meet and network with brands for your business – from software to help your team, to special show prices for tools and products for your kitbag.

Continue the celebrations and networking at the Modern Barber Awards in the evening at the Patterns nightclub. Come and raise a glass (or two) to the finalists and winners from all aspects of the industry, from teams to apprentices to the leaders who inspire us.

Modern Barber executive director, Jayne Lewis-Orr, says: “Our event last year was the comeback the industry needed, but for 2022 it’s even more important we all get together, support each other and share knowledge and stories. Barbers are incredibly passionate about their jobs and Barberfest is designed to inspire and educate whatever level you are.”

So what are you waiting for – head to the website to get your tickets and we’ll see you there. www.barberfest.co.uk
