The Labour-controlled Penarth Town Council has hired out the Paget Rooms in Penarth next year to stage a beauty contest for children as young as 3-years-of-age.

The upcoming Miss Beauty UK Contest is divided in to several age categories which include :-

  • “Little Miss” – for children aged between 3 and 7 years of age (Prize £80)
  • “Junior Miss” – for children aged between 8 and 11 (Prize  £80)
  • “Junior Teen” – for children between 12 and 15  (Prize £90)

A “free chaperone” is to be provided for each one of the younger (under 16) competitors – presumably to set at rest any concerns local parents might have about “safeguarding”.

All the entrants will receive “Pageant training” to ensure that they won’t put a foot wrong when the spotlight is on them.

There’s also a category for men and boys called “Mister” . The qualifying age for this is not defined because it will  depend on the ages of those who enter for the contest.

However the organisers say the all winners will receive a sash, but make it clear that the winning “Mister” will not be expected to wear a tiara . (The winning girls in each category will each have a tiara to take home).

The contest is the fourth which has been held to date is expected to evoke  some of the glamour of the old televised Miss UK contests. Last year’s event was held in Bridgend –  but it’s thought this is the first time for the finals – involving such young children – to be held in Penarth.

The event is being organised by Synergy UK and is scheduled to take place at the Paget Rooms in Penarth on May 4th 2019 .

    I suppose the torrid tories were right, labour are living in the 70’s where rubbish like this should have stayed as a distant memory.

  2. 249ers says:

    Why is that little boy wearing a tiara?

  3. Lesley says:

    So? There’s regular adverts for new born baby contests all over the country

  4. AK says:

    I blame the parents

  5. Penileaks says:

    This is sexist.
    There must be a category for those Transgender children that the VoG and the Welsh Assembly are so keen to promote and what about the Non Binary kids who would like to enter ?
    PTC should not agree to allow this contest to take place in the Paget Rooms until all genders are catered for.
    A shocking decision by our revered local council and just so, so unfair on those minority groups. Shame on you.

      Not a pantomime …: but i suppose the rabid anti transgender bores might see a plot in it to normalise men dressing as women ….

      • Fishhenge says:

        Rabid transgender bores? Surely not all transgender people are crazy, foaming at the mouth and uninteresting.

  8. Andrew Worsley says:

    This sort of thing is outdated and not up with the times , when children grow up there is plenty of time for this from teenage years upward , this puts the wrong attitudes into young impressionable minds and those organising it want to get with the times or read a book on child psychology… Those involved in religion also use this mode of controlling or is that brain washing of young minds in both instances it is WRONG , WRONG , WRONG .
