Charlie Chaplin or Dorothy Cotton?

When it comes to British Icons everyone’s got their own idea and that’s why our stand at this year’s London Convention will be showcasing the ‘Best of British’ where we’ll be asking visitors to tell us who the Best British Icon of all time is in their opinion.

Our sponsored artists and studios are on board too and have created portraits for our ‘Best of British’ Backdrop – a graffiti wall which is ready for everyone who visits the convention to get involved with.


Post up a picture for the chance to win a prize

We’ll be giving ‘Best of British’ Postcards and Pencils out over the three days of the convention and asking our customers to draw their top Brit Icon on the back.

We’ll pin entries up on our stands graffiti wall whilst they post them on our Facebook or Instagram Page with the hashtag #BARBERDTSBESTOFBRITISH

Everyone who enters will be in the running to win one of the wonderful prizes we’re giving away across the whole three days of the convention.
