|Miss World for the Dome|
- Beauty contest could follow beauty's visit
THE MISS WORLD beauty pageant is being lined up for the Dome.
Millennium Experience officials have admitted they have opened talks with Miss World organisers about staging the annual event, probably this autumn. The current Miss World, India's Yukta Mookhey, was at the Dome yesterday to help announce the attraction's latest coup, that it will stage the Indian Oscars on June 24th.
Latest figures for attendance at the Dome were disappointing, with the expected Easter rush failing to materialise, but Dome chief Pierre-Yves Gerbeau denied suggestions he was ready to ask the government for another dose of subsidy. "Not at the moment," Gerbeau said.
