HA. We use natural Bees wax sourced from along the South coast as well as Petroleum Jelly to make the wax more malleable. Pie & Vinyl’s Wax is available both scented and original priced at £5.99.’

As you may already know, the sudden appearance of bushy, droopy or Errol Flynn moustaches on many a man’s upper lip across Portsmouth, every November, helps to mark the beginning of the global, annual, Movember Foundation Campaign.

The Movember Charity is proud to be responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world. With their “Mos”, these men raise vital funds and awareness, supporting research, patient support and prompting conversations; about the often ignored issues of prostate and testicular cancer and mental health, within the worlds communities.

Movember challenges men to grow a sponsored moustache for the 30-days of November, thereby transforming their faces into walking, talking billboards, successfully raising awareness and money for the Movember Foundation.


But, never a truer word was spoken, when it was said that . . .
“Behind every great man, stands a great woman”.

Mo Sisters do everything that Mo Bros do, just without a Mo.  A Mo Sister is essentially a woman who not only loves a Mo, but is dedicated to supporting the Mo Bros in her life, through their moustache growing journey. These inspirational women are committed to raising awareness of men’s health issues and much needed funds for men’s health along the way.


Since its humble beginnings in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement, inspiring more than 3 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sisters to participate across 21 countries and thousands of cities worldwide, with Portsmouth being Mo exception (see what we did there?!).

Last year, in addition to thousands of individual Pompey sponsored Mo growing efforts, a handful of local patrons and independent Portsmouth businesses, made up of Southsea’s Pie & Vinyl, Strong Island, Head Barbers of Albert Rd and Munroe Effect vocalist Daniel Sutton-Johanson, banded together and raised a glorious £1800 in one wild party at Little Johnny Russell’s,  contributing to the 2012 international grand total of £92 Million Pounds.

FRIDAY 29TH NOVEMBER  –  The Wedgewood Rooms  –  8pm till 2am

This year, determined to break the £2K target, they’ve expanded their brotherhood and partnered up with
The Wedgewood Rooms & U.K Flyers to lay on an even Bigger Movember Spectacular.
Tickets are just £5 and all proceeds go towards The Movember Foundation.

In addition, Southsea’s Mo Collective, are proud to have joined forces with the handsome team behind
Hipshaker and the sinful dance-floor mavericks of It’s a Sin, comprising of The News Awards 2013 very own ‘DJ of the Year’ DJ Lemon and his 2012 winning comrade, DJ Spiky Mark, to form an exclusive and one night only musical love child – SINSHAKER Clubnight!

The night will also play host to Champagne Justice DJs and a super line-up of live music including
The Day of The Rabblement, Curxes, Kassassin Street and BBC Introducing favourites and Reading & Leeds Festival lightning rods, Dingus Khan.
Not only that, but as Official Movember Rated Barbers, HEAD Barbers, will be providing 5 Star, Mo Your Own Way, traditional Mo cuts throughout the night, for any brave bearded patrons wishing to join the cause for donations.

Doors open at 8pm and the party runs into the early hours, in the hands of Sinshaker DJs, until 2am.




stand up and be counted . . .

Portsmouth, the charity and in particular, the amazing work it does, holds such a personal place in the lives of those involved in last year’s huge success, that this year, the same team want to raise the bar and  ambitions of the city to see what the Portsmouth & Southsea community can achieve in aid of Movember.

Movember Gala Partés are super special international events, organized and promoted by Movember H.Q, which mark the end the 30 day mo growing, money raising & awareness raising campaign with a big mighty bang. Only a handful of carefully and specially selected, Official Movember Gala Cities exist across the world and in the U.K, London and Bristol are the only Gala Partés located in Southern England.

After initial discussions with The Movember  Foundation, Portsmouth has within its grasp, a grand chance of being welcomed into the fold of this internationally recognized and celebrated family of cities, who add their weight to the Movember Movement , including Rio, New York, Toronto, Boston, Sydney, San Francisco, London and Manchester!

The bid for Portsmouth’s Gala Parté status, will be submitted after  this year Southsea Movember Spectacular  at The Wedgewood Rooms – therefore, we must all work to make this a huge success!


This is a call to the Portsmouth & Southsea’s wolf pack!
Calling all patrons, businesses, students, music lovers, dancer floor daredevils and institutions of this amazing city, to join and help promote this night, buy a ticket or simply donate what they can.
