Pageant Girl® are the organisers for some of the leading, national pageants in the United Kingdom. Starting in May 2007 from the university bedroom of our founder, Holly Pirrie, we now crown 14 national, beauty queens annually, with them globetrotting to represent their countries at international pageants worldwide.
Holly was inspired by her own experiences in ‘pageant land,’ and wanted to give more girls, and women, the opportunities that she had been afforded through pageantry. The focus of Pageant Girl® is to encourage positive achievement in women and to create fun & confidence-building experiences.
Based in a glittering (literally, full of sparkle) office in Cheshire, the Pageant Girl® team co-ordinate the pageant finals for Miss Teen Great Britain, United Kingdom Galaxy Pageants, Miss International UK, Miss Grand England, Scotland and Wales, and Miss & Teen Pageant Girl UK. From 2011-2018, Pageant Girl also sent UK delegates to the international Miss Intercontinental final.
Being a part of our organisation is about celebrating and empowering women, we recognise that all women are beautiful and one of the most fantastic qualities is when a girl is unapologetically herself. The Pageant Girl® motto is ‘Beautifully Inspiring.’ Since 2012, the Pageant Girl® competitions have raised over £500,000 for our chosen charities.
Here are the pageants that we organise..
