Miss Montserrat 2022 Pageant Cancelled

Montserrat Arts Council (MAC) on Friday announced the cancellation of the Miss Montserrat pageant which was slated to be held as part of the Carnival 2022 celebrations in December.

MAC Director, Kenneth Silcott said “The Board of Directors has taken the decision to cancel the event as it became clear they would not be able to deliver a show that would meet the standards befitting of the 60th year of the festival.”

“We would like to express our deepest regret to the delegates, the sponsors and the planning team who have already put considerable resources into the pageant. We seek to always present an experience of the highest calibre for the delegates and the audience.

“Our sincerest apologies to the three young women who had begun to prepare for the pageant, and we wish them success in their future endeavours,” the director added.

Montserrat held its first December festival in 1962 and celebrates its 60th anniversary from December 17, 2022, to January 2, 2023.
