Barber UK has announced it will be partnering with men’s mental health charity, Lions Barber Collective for their 2020 show, taking place on Sunday 3 and Monday, 4 May at the NEC, Birmingham.

The barbering event will help in raising money for the charity with the launch of its new Tattoo Zone area.    

Attendees will be able to visit the area and get a barber-theme tattoo during the show. 

A percentage of the money raised will be donated to The Lions Barber Collective.   

Barber UK’s show director, Gary Hackett, said, “We are thrilled to announce our charity partnership with The Lions Barber Collective. 

“The Tattoo Zone is set to be an exciting addition to the event in 2020 and we look forward to seeing the designs our visitors opt for as they raise funds for this worthwhile cause.” 

Tom Chapman, founder and CEO of The Lions Barber Collective, added, “To be asked to attend Barber UK and have our own stand is amazing, the reach that is available over the course of the event is an amazing opportunity.  

“Then to be asked to be the charity partner for the event is just next level!  

“It is a fantastic opportunity to raise funds to enable us to survive and continue our work.  

“Then on top of that, the awareness we can raise in the industry alongside Barber UK will no doubt help many and enable us to save more lives! We can’t wait to be there!” 

The Lions Barber Collective is a charity dedicated to raising awareness for men’s mental health and training barbers to recognise the signs in their clients. 

This enables barbers to offer their clients support and signpost them to the help they may need.

This will not only be an exciting opportunity to work alongside a worthy cause, but to also show off your talent to thousands of visitors. 

In addition to the leading brands to browse, Barber UK will also feature a range of inspiring demonstrations and talks, including the World Barber Stage where visitors can enjoy free barber tutorials hosted by top barbering talent from around the globe.
