December 2016 will see the crowning of a new host of contestants competing for the title of the UK’s Queen of the Caribbean.
Miss Caribbean United Kingdom was set up as an event to promote all the different Caribbean countries under one umbrella. The event uses a pageant to promote, educate, inspire and celebrate the historical and cultural impact of the Caribbean within the United Kingdom.
The pageant was created to inspire by example; those who feel disadvantaged and to empower them by showing them that, beauty is more than skin deep.
The MCUK organisers, Clayton and Jacqui Brown, have expressed that this is set to be The Ultimate Crown for Caribbean Pageants in the UK.
“We want to ensure that this event continues to grow and includes the whole Caribbean community, both here in the UK and Internationally. This is more than just a pageant to us; it is a means to unite around a common cause.
We want MCUK to be a vehicle which will assist in bringing the Caribbean and its diaspora within the UK, closer. We want the old and younger generation Caribbean descendants to recognise the influence and impact that the Caribbean Diaspora has had on UK culture and thus, appreciate the importance of retaining the link with their Caribbean heritage.”
Last year, the multi-talented Antigua & Barbuda beauty, 28 year old Amy Harris-Willock, stole the show and won the hearts of the judges with her beauty, eloquence and cultural awareness, at the Miss Caribbean UK 2015 beauty pageant, held at the Shaw theatre London.
Winning Miss Caribbean UK allows great exposure and support in the winner’s career aspirations via hitting red carpets, attending special events, backstage networking, guest public appearances, interviews, photo shoots, work experience opportunities and mentoring support. Travel opportunities are also on offer with Amy scheduled to visit Antigua and Barbuda in October as part of her prize sponsored by Stoke Newington Travel and Designer Travel.
Dignitaries and celebrated faces from sport, media and entertainment will hit the red carpet for the December pre-Christmas Grand Finals soirée.
Barrister and TV Personality Mr Shaun Wallace is MCUK’s first official Patron. He is known for being one of the Chasers on ITV’s quiz show THE CHASE where he has the nickname: The Dark Destroyer.
The Miss Caribbean UK Grand Final” will be filmed on Saturday 3rd December 2016 at the Broadway Theatre, Catford by London Live TV and presented by Delia Dolor, Remel London and Reisz ‘Ty’ Amos.
