The prestigious Miss Uganda UK beauty pageant is back and in its 10th year running under J.M Promotions.
The family, glamorous and colourful event will see 12 finalists from around the UK of Ugandan heritage take centre stage in the hope to become the new Queen of the Ugandan community in the UK.
The most anticipated event in the Ugandan calendar in diaspora will see a live performance from UK artists who will entertain the audience alongside cultural performances.
We have since established that the Miss Uganda UK 2022 grand finale will be held on Saturday November 5th, 2022 at the Dominion Centre, N22 6DS.
The organisers of the event will be working with Draw a Smile Uganda, a youth led non-profit organisation that promotes gender equality, and rights of girls and young women.
The organisation campaigns for educational, social and economic empowerment.
It also focuses on helping young women especially mothers to access basic needs through good turn projects, equipping them with skills and tackling reproductive health challenges to help them perform to their full potential.
Meanwhile, we have learnt that this year’s Miss Uganda UK chapter is sponsored by Tap Tap Send, an international money transfer company in the UK owned by Ugandans.
