Release from Miss Voluptuous International- As you all know, the last year has been tumultuous at best, and has significantly impacted the Pageant community as a whole. We are extremely grateful that in a pandemic year, we have been able to grow and flourish.
However, with Presidential Proclamation 10143 still firmly in place, and borders across the globe still closed for International travel, myself, my team and 12 of your pageant sisters are either barred from USA entry, or restricted in terms of International Travel from their home countries.
We’ve been monitoring this situation continuously and had hoped that the progress that Europe and other parts of the world have made in terms of vaccinations would mean that safe travel could resume in time for the October Grand Final. Sadly, this is looking less and less likely, and with just three months until our scheduled date, we have to be realistic and fair to all. We therefore have no alternative but to postpone the 2021 International Final. Our new date will be 1st April 2022, with the itinerary and location remaining the same.
April 1st – Queen’s Welcome Reception and Dinner
April 2nd – Parthenon, Sightseeing and Party Bus Tour
April 3rd – Personal Introduction Competition, Interviews, Photoshoots and Movie Night April 4th – Optionals, Cuisine Cook-off, HalloQueen Party and Awards
April 5th – Competition, Coronation show and Winner’s Shoot
April 6th – Queens Farewell Breakfast and Departure – All Contestants
This has been an extremely difficult decision to make, despite it feeling like the right thing to do. I am extremely grateful for your understanding and support; we’re still making Pageant History together as the first Plus-Exclusive British pageant to go to Internationals, and I promise that the event will be worth every second of the wait!
For those Queens that have booked in with Jade Wade, I have spoken with her and she is honouring all bookings and payments and moving the dates across. All fees paid still stand, and the accommodation bookings for the Estate are still valid; although spaces at the Estate are filling up fast.

Deadline dates will also be extended; all payments, paperwork, etc will now be due no later than February 1st.
Each of you will have an additional five months to prep, inspire and make an impact. When we make history, it will be even better, even bigger, and even more colourful!
I look forward to meeting each and every one of you at registration, and if you need anything, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Many thanks and best wishes,
