For your chance to become a Team England 2017 Finalist keep watching this page for the details!
The Team England Selection will be held at The Grand Burstin Hotel, Folkestone with the date to be confirmed. There will be three rounds plus an opening round.
The opening round is a white round where all girls will need to wear a white dress of their choice. During this round the girls will receive their finalist sash and be introduced to the audience (please note girls are not judged on the opening round).
Club Wear Round
The second round is club wear (ideally club wear dress is short). This is your chance to have fun on stage and really show your personality.
The third round is swimwear; please make sure your swimsuit/bikini is red.
Evening Wear Round
The fourth round is evening wear, this round is your chance to wear your long evening gowns. During this round you will also do your speech. Your speech is just a short introduction about yourself; you can say whatever you like.
Once all the rounds are completed the judge’s scores will be tallied and the winning ten girls will be announced.
What happens if you are selected?
If you are selected as a member of the team you will be crowned and sashed on the night. You will then have a brief meeting with John Trickey who will inform you of what is expected of a Team England member.
During the year you will be invited to attend lots of different events and trips, there is a trip to Belgium and France every year as well as the chance to take part in Deal Carnival with several of the other teams where you will go through the town on an open top bus! There will also be a team photo shoot and several team dance rehearsals that are compulsory.
Preparation for the Grand Final starts right away. You will all meet up several times to learn the Team Dance choreography which you will perform on the Friday night of the final week. The Team Dance competition is a chance for all of you to work as a team and have a lot of fun, plus take home the Team Dance trophy!
All girls are expected to find their own outfits for each round in the final competition (please note your swimwear must be red). All of the Team England committee will be available throughout the whole year to help you as much as you need. You will also have coaching sessions with out pageant coaches Kerry Anne Vinson (Miss European 2013/2014) Maddie Wahdan (Team dance choreographer and English Princess 2013/2014).
