The Ramada Plaza Hotel, Southport will be host to this years 50 finalists and a fast moving fashion show style final will be held in the Southport Theatre & Convention Centre's Floral Hall on the 21st July, attracting family, friends and sponsors of the competition from across England.

Even though the Miss England competition is being held at the seaside, the event has moved away from the old bathing beauty parade . Instead contestants will take part in a series of qualifying rounds that include sports/fitness, fundraising, talent & an Eco-fashion show whereby contestants are given the chance to use their creative skills and ingenuity to come up with an outfit made from recycled materials.

Mark Catherall, Sefton Council's Head of Service for Tourism said "We are delighted that Southport has the opportunity to host such a fabulous event. The resort has an unrivalled reputation when it comes to hosting national conferences and major public events such as the Southport Air Show, The British Musical Fireworks Championship and of course The Southport Flower Show. We are pleased to be associated with Miss England, an organisation that promotes such a healthy and positive approach in the beauty industry and look forward to working with the team.".

Over the last 5 years the Miss England competition has raised more than £700k for disadvantaged children and families in the UK using the Miss World slogan "Beauty with a Purpose". This includes funding custom-built, adapted coaches for disabled children at specialist schools. Over £225k has been raised in the North West by regional Miss England contestants & donated to the Variety Children's charity.
