Could you be the ugliest mug in Larkhall? Come and pull your worst (or best!) face!

A gurn is a distorted facial expression. Gurning contests are a rural English tradition.┬áThe competitions are held regularly in some villages, with contestants traditionally framing their faces through a horse collar, known as “gurnin’ through a braffin”.
