These testimonials are a selection of the comments we received following the UK Galaxy Finals!
- After nearly a month recovering from the galaxy excitement, I thought I’d drop you a message. Thank you so much for another amazing experience with you all. I had such a fantastic time and wish I’d started competing in Galaxy sooner! You do an amazing job in every competition you organise and I’m so reluctant to sign up to any other pageants out of fear that they won’t live up to yours. You looked after me so well, from the lead up to the competition, to the day itself and for that I’m very grateful. Fingers crossed I’ll be back on one of your stages in the near future.
All the best and many thanks,
Noky Simbani - Miss Teen Derbyshire Galaxy 2015
- Thank you for an amazing time this weekend I enjoyed every single second of it!!!! I can’t wait to re enter!
Ellie Harriss – Junior Miss Bristol Galaxy 2015
- Hello Holly and the rest of the team. Thank you so much for this weekend. It has probably been the best weekend of my life! It has given me a massive boost of confidence and has completely changed my life. I can now officially say I am in pageant world land!!! Competing against nearly 60 girls for the first time and still oozing confidence doesn’t that say something about the way you make every girl feel? You make each and every one of us feel beautiful inside and out (getting emotional ha) ..but honestly, I wanted to thank you in person before I left but you looked so busy and I knew how tired you were! You have given me new goals to strive for. I kind of wish I would have started earlier in my teens but still, at only 21 it’s not going to stop me reaching my new goal one day! I hope you get a nice refreshing sleep and I’m sure I will see you in future pageants 100%. Thank you so much again holly.
Chloe Ingham – Miss Burnley Galaxy 2015
- Hey Holly, I know that you are probably getting through loads of messages but I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and your amazing team for running such a fantastic pageant. Out of all the pageant systems I have competed in, yours is by far the most enjoyable and well organised. I may not have won the crown but I have walked away with new memories and friends! I will definitely be returning next year – I have my heart set on Galaxy, Rebecca is such a worthy queen and I can’t wait to follow her and the other new winners’ journey to America!! I have no doubt that one and hopefully more of them will walk away with the international crown!
Amber Goman – Miss Teen Cardiff Galaxy
- Hi Holly and the rest of the team. I’ve been trying to type this for the past couple of days but I’m struggling to find the words to thank you! Galaxy was the best experience of my life. I enjoyed the whole day and of course everything leading up to it. Being a Galaxy girl has changed me for the better. I have grown in confidence and made new friends. All of my friends and family see a huge difference in me and I’m so proud of myself. Thank you for giving me this opportunity and thank you for voting me into the top 5!!! Oh my gosh I cannot believe it!! All I can say is I can’t believe it. I am truly overwhelmed and I can’t wait to come back next year…if you will have me! Lots of love from Emma, 3rd runner up Miss Galaxy Scotland (omg!!) Xxx

Kerry Sexton – Miss West Sussex Galaxy 2015
- Hello, I bet you have lots of similar messages, but I would just like to say thank you to you and to your whole team! I have been competing in pageants for 3 years now and Galaxy is the only pageant that I have returned to other then the Miss Wales regional heats! And that is down to they way it is run! This year for me was a day of mixed emotions, but with the help of your team I got through the day, and not only did I get through it but I did myself and my friend proud and not only did I improve on my performance of last year by placing 2nd runner up, I always won four awards and I think they mean more to me then my placing! Thank you again to you and everyone on your team and lets hope its 3rd time lucky for me!! Never giving up on my dream!!!
Kelly Rowland – Miss Carmarthenshire Galaxy 2015
- Hi Holly. We didn’t get chance to say goodbye but I wanted to thank you for the weekend. It is still Alyssa’s favourite pageant system and she is determined to be a Galaxy girl so can you tell me what happens about applying for the next finals. I wanted to thank you for everything, she has loved every bit of the weekend and she is insisting on doing it again now she knows she will still be a junior. Thank you again to you and the team anyway and any advice would be much appreciated. Congratulations on another successful pageant and great show, we loved it!

Thank you so much, there’s never success without failure & what’s for me won’t go by me. You’re an amazing director and should be proud of everything you’ve achieved! You’ve gave so many girls confidence, including myself. So thank you & I hope to see you soon.

April Banbury, Miss Hertfordshire Galaxy 2011
- Having never been to a pageant before, we really didn’t know what to expect, but it was just wonderful. Having some experience of event organising I truly appreciate all the hard work and effort that went on behind the scenes. So, thank you!! It was a pleasure to meet you and all your lovely Galaxy family, the girls were delightful and made us feel so welcome and a real part of Galaxy, so much more than we were hoping for.
Laura has had the time of her life and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, from the pageant training (invaluable for a girl with not so much as a photo shoot under her belt!!) to the evening itself. I watched in awe as she came alive on that catwalk and for her to make the final 10 and receive Best Interview award was just the icing on the cake. I have no doubt that she will have gained so much from taking part, not only in terms of experience in pageants but also on a personal level.
Parent of Laura Barrat, Miss Durham Galaxy 2011
- Thank you for an amazing weekend! This was my only second pageant and I feel my confidence levels have doubled from all your kind words and inspiration.

Brilliant event and will see you next year in the UK Galaxy again with Chantelle.
