Miss TV Scotland Weekend, King Malcolm Hotel, Dunfermline

The dates this year are from Friday 24th to Sunday 25th October 2014. The usual format applies – we will fly up to Edinburgh from London (flights details to be confirmed) and then transfer to The King Malcolm Hotel in Dunfermline.

I will be doing makeovers and nails Friday afternoon for the 'Night Of One Hundred 80s Divas' - not just the pop girls like Kylie, Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, Annie Lennox etc. but think also TV/film - Dynasty, Dallas, Wonder Woman and more. There will be karaoke – They are looking for the best 80s impersonators, so please tell Loraine and Louise about your singing talents when you get to the hotel!! There will also be an 80s quiz and of course, prizes for the best outfits!! DJ Gladys takes over after with her disco late into the night. Then you can fall into bed and get a good nights sleep before rising bright and early for the day’s activities throughout the Saturday. These range from quizzes to manicures and beauty treatments.

Saturday afternoon I will begin makeovers in our special make up room that is given to us for the weekend. Saturday night is of course the time of the fabulous Miss TV Scotland and Miss Hide and Sleek Competitions, taking place directly after a sumptuous Three Course Gala Meal. As you know, anybody can enter the competition (even if you are not from Scotland) so you are all welcome to have a go.

The Boudoir has had many winners in the Miss TV Scotland competitions. The first was the stunning Sarah Gray way back in 2003, then Zoe Snaggle in 2005, Ashley Monae became the first black Miss TV Scotland in 2007 with fellow Boudette Jill Kaylee as first runner up. In 2008 Liz Dietrich won first prize with Tessa Stevenson scooping up the Miss Hide and Sleek first place.

Dee Coe won Miss Hide and Sleek in 2009 with Rachel Green ably retaining the title for The Boudoir a year later in 2010!! 2011 saw Rachel Green and Liz Dietrich both in runner up positions in Miss TV Scotland. In 2012 Rachel was victorious again, this time as Miss TV Scotland with former champion Liz coming second. Deborah Loncraine was a glamorous runner up in 2012's Miss Hide and Sleek.

Last year, on Friday's James Bond themed evening party Trixie Bailey and Stacey Dee Collins were joint first in the fancy dress competition for their portrayals of Magda (Kristina Wayborn) from Octopussy and Solitaire (Jane Seymour) from Live And Let Die respectively.

Saturday saw more great success for both The Boudoir and Trixie as she won the Miss Hide And Sleek title, with Deborah Loncraine coming second. In Miss TV Scotland our Sara Campbell came third and Elizabeth Von Dietrich was runner up!! Well done girls!!

After the competition there is the fabulous DJ Gladys and her brilliant disco to the wee small hours followed by drinking in the hotel till you just can’t take any more.

Sunday, we fly home to London. This really is a fabulous weekend where you get the chance to dress for the whole weekend if you want to. You don’t even have to leave the hotel!! In the past we have found that everyone really bonds and comes back to London on a real high!! The Hide and Sleek crew are a really nice group of people and the Scots have always been really friendly to us.

The rooms are all twin rooms so you will be sharing with another Boudette. If there is someone you would particularly like to share with, please let me know. The cost of the weekend is £380. This includes two makeovers and nailsYour meals Friday and Saturday night - Your breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings - Your two night’s accommodation. Your transfer to Dunfermline from Edinburgh Airport will be included if the majority of us travel together, however if everyone is arriving at different times and travelling to the hotel separately then you will be responsible for your own taxi fare. Once you place a firm booking with us we will advise you on flights if you would like to fly with other Boudettes to Edinburgh, but you can also make your own flight arrangements and meet at the hotel if you prefer.

A 50% deposit to guarantee your place on this trip will be required, with full payment being made before the event date. This is a very popular trip so you will need to let me know as soon as you can if you would like to attend. You can call me on 020 8211 1666 or email info@theboudoironline.com to book your place. The places for this trip are limited so we do need your booking and deposit ASAP. I do hope you can join us in bonnie Scotland for what I consider to be the most enjoyable tranny weekend of the year.

Trannyshack, Madame Jojo's, London

The Boudoir is pleased to present a mid-week opportunity to get out and about for those of you who find weekends difficult. Wednesdays are Trannyshack night at Madame Jojo's on Brewer Street, in the heart of London’s Soho. In my opinion the venue, the music and the vibe make this the best tranny night in London at this present time. The music is friendly, the hosts are a plethora of colour and imaginative drag that resembles the feel of the 80s London drag scene and the crowd is mixed and fascinating. Trannyshack attracts a host of unusual, colourful and flamboyant people who just love drag… either being in it, or just being around it. Dusty O, Lady Lloydand Tasty Tim are the most glamorous hosts in London and they never fail to make this night special. The cabaret spot midway through the night is an absolute scream and well worth watching.

Here’s what the Trannyshack official website said about the club: ''Trannyshack is one of Soho's saucy secrets. Every Wednesday an über-eclectic mix of Klub Kids, Trannies, Drag Queens, Inbetweenies, Fabulous Hetros and Scene Queens get together for one hell of a party!! You can’t fail to have fun at Trannyshack. Everything is geared towards it. Trannyshack regularly hosts special PAs which in the past have included Lady Bunny, Marcella Detroit, Laquisha Jonez and pretty much all of London’s drag stars. The music is party pop and fashionably funky provided by 4 of London’s scene legends Dusty O, Tasty Tim, and Lady Lloyd. It’s £1.00 before midnight if you surrender your gender and party in heels and lippy, otherwise it's £5.00. Everyone loves Trannyshack. Come once and we promise you, you will return!!''
