New digital shows streaming on #THEKNOWLEDGE

Following on from the success of their lockdown broadcasts, the Fellowship for British Hairdressing is delighted to announce the launch of two new digital shows to keep members, sponsors and the wider industry connected for the remainder of the year: an exciting new format – Life Stories – and the return of lockdown favourite, Drinks with the President. These weekly broadcasts of #THEKNOWLEDGE will be a great way for  Fellowship members, sponsors and the hairdressing community to stay engaged, inspired and connected to the industry.

Life Stories

When: 6pm on Sunday 4th October, Sunday 1st November and Sunday 6th December

Where: and online at

This exciting format is a new initiative for the Fellowship, combining live interviews with leading industry names with an exciting opportunity for members. Broadcasting on a Sunday evening with one special guest per episode, the show will celebrate inspiring careers through a combination of live interviews, surprise appearances and insightful stories. Special guests (to be announced soon) will be interviewed from the studio, salon or home, with in-depth interviews covering everything you never knew you wanted to know about some of the industry’s most iconic names – and it’s live, so anything could happen!

As a special bonus opportunity for Fellowship members, each interview will be followed by a digital meet and greet. Limited to 25 places, available on a first-come, first-served basis, members will be given the chance to talk the special guests in more detail, pick their brains and enjoy the unparalleled opportunity to ask some industry icons ANYTHING! Sounds exciting!

Drinks with the President

When: 6pm on Sunday 18th October and Sunday 15th November

Where: and online at

Back due to popular demand, Fellowship President, Ken Picton (#Mr President) will once again be opening up his bar to welcome some special guests for a – virtual – drink or two. Drinks with the President launched during lockdown in light of the postponed President’s Night, which was obviously unable to take place in April. The format sees Ken prop up the bar in his Cardiff salon, with special guests joining him virtually to raise a glass, share some stories and generally raise a smile – with all mentions of the ‘c’ word banned! Ken will be hosting two extra rounds of drinks to see out the year, with special guests and more chat, stories and anecdotes in a relaxed setting.

Ken says: “We’re excited to launch new content for the last quarter of the year to build on our connection with members, sponsors and the wider hairdressing community. Our online streaming platform, #THEKNOWLEDGE, has been our lifeline over the last few months. When we launched it one year ago, we had no idea that we’d be ahead of the game with a dynamic digital service that would see us through a pandemic, but we’re proud to have used it to share content during lockdown that has kept everyone engaged, entertained and educated.”

Jo Martin, Project Leader for #THEKNOWLEDGE says: “We worked on the platform and programming for 18 months behind the scenes, and over the last six months it has proved to be a lifeline. It has given the Fellowship a way to communicate with everyone and stay in touch. We’re so grateful for the support we’ve been shown with our broadcasts including the Sunday Showdown, and now have a new line-up of exciting formats which we can’t wait to share.”

“People have reached out from across the world to talk about how much they’ve loved the content,” adds Ken. “And it was time to build on that. It’s been a challenging year to say the least, but we as a team believe we’ve created an amazing community who have stood together. It’s been tough, but we’re ready to end 2020 on a high.”
