If it is raining or windy, please bring an umbrella.
The finalist and one supervising parent only should arrive between 9.30am (no earlier please) and 10am. Please remember guys are not permitted into the changing area so if the supervising parent is male, please let us know in advance so we can make changing area arrangements for you.

Awards and results between 3 - 4pm
Top 5 contestants must not leave before photos are completed, usually by 4.30pm.
For safety reasons we are operating with restricted numbers in the changing area, so there may be a delay to access the changing rooms. Where possible finalists are asked to leave the venue in their party dress (outfit 2) which will allow them to take more photos in the fabulous gardens as you are leaving.
The event is not really suitable for very young children and all people especially young children watching the event must be kept off the catwalk please.
Miss British Isles does NOT run a talent section. It is a modelling competition not a pageant. Finalists are not subjected to interviews.
Please note that guys are not permitted into the girls changing areas under any circumstances.
Any contestant bringing a guy into the changing room will be disqualified.
You are not required to stay overnight in Chester, however deals for hotels in Chester can be found at www.trivago.co.uk
The photographers will be taking photos during the event. You will receive all of them by we transfer within 2 weeks of the final date. Friends and family must not obstruct the official photographers.
We would ask that all finalists and family/friends attending the event take a lateral flow test the day before the event and in the morning for each day they are attending.
We are requesting this to keep everybody safe.
We understand that you’re a not required by law to do this but we want to minimise risks
If you receive a positive test please do not attend.
We also request that family/friends attending the event wear a mask when moving around busy areas such as the bar, changing areas and when you first arrive at the venue.
It is also very important that you respect other finalists and family’s space.
Please do not just go up and hug another finalist without making sure they are happy with this.
We hope you will help us with this approach and to put on a safe event and thank you for your continued support.
We look forward to seeing you at the final and we would like to wish all finalists good luck for the event.
