Captain Fawcett’s Marvellous Museum Launch

On Saturday 9th March Captain Fawcett hosted a splendid candle-lit soiree at his

mysterious HQ in Kings Lynn, Norfolk.


It had long been rumoured that during his adventures, Captain Fawcett was gathering a

most intriguing collection of barbering artefacts and ephemera. And indeed, the rumours

prove to be absolutely true for, ably assisted by his Right Hand Man, the Captain has

curated a most Marvellous Barbershop Museum within his own Gentleman’s Grooming

Emporium, a Personal Homage to Tonsorial Art. And Saturday’s extravaganza declared

the Museum well and truly open.


Esteemed guests travelled to Kings Lynn from Germany, France, Sweden, Spain, Italy,

Russia, the USA, India and Pakistan and arrived from all corners of Blighty to attend a

spectacular event where it is reported a superb time was had by all.


Making a personal appearance were several of Captain Fawcett’s excellent Ambassadors:

Carl-Johan Kellgren, Kim Johansen, Maxwell Newton, Russell Bristow, Pietro Grassilli,

Herr Feldman, Glynn Woods, Arron Raw, Johnny Appleby and Penelope Taylor-Newton.

And the Captain was delighted to welcome Ricki Hall, Sid Sottung and Viraj Singh of The

Jodhpur Company, the well-known characters behind some of Captain Fawcett’s beloved

Signature Series. Meanwhile Andreas of Germany, Fiona of Ireland, Juan of Spain and

Francesco of Italy represented some of the Captain’s global distributors.


The party was fed and watered by wood-fired pizza from Mangiamo’s and a Shef’s hog

roast while toasts were raised with tipples from AJ Bars. And new chums Rok Soba, the

brothers who inject rock ‘n’ roll into sobriety, pitched up with their excellent newly launched

alcohol free ‘Zero Fear’ stout.


Glitz and glamour a go-go was also on the menu with the delightful Miss Velma Von Bon

Bon and ravishing Miss Millie Dollar plus Mr Edd Muir whose dramatic aerial antics paid

homage to the world of Peaky Blinders and music filled the night thanks to On the Level,

featuring Captain Fawcett’s own Corey Doades on bass guitar.


Final mention must go to the exceptionally skilled Scapicchio Barber Family, barbers for 5

generations, who demonstrated their famed ‘Kamisori’ fixed blade shaving technique to

great wonder and amazement.


The Museum features items of interest to all with a passion for barbering, history and

objects with a story to tell. With a background in the film industry, Richie Finney has

curated Captain Fawcett’s Museum with the eye of a set designer, and as such it also

serves as unique photo and film location.


Visitors to the Museum, located on the mezzanine of Captain Fawcett’s Emporium, will

also be able to sample and purchase the full range of Simply First Class Gentleman’s

Grooming Requisites.
