Rose’s Harmony Weekend at the New Bath Hotel, Matlock Bath, Derbyshire, U.K.

What a great weekend!  Just get back from it.

One of the highlights for me was Sunday’s visit and tour round Chatsworth House, Derbyshire, a very famous English stately home and ancestral seat of the Dukes of Devonshire (see the recent Hollywood film – ‘The Duchess’, starring Keirs Knightly  ( – about the life of Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire (June 71757March 301806)

Chatsworth House was used at the set for many of the scenes of the film.  

A group of us transgendered girls from Rose’s Harmony Weekend went round the house to see the beautiful Christmas decorations, bringing a touch of colour and feminine charm to the other visitors on an otherwise cold and wet winter’s day!

Rosie and I greatly enjoyed chatting to some of you on Friday and Saturday night – we were nattering with Carol from London in the bar until after 3.00 am, and enjoyed our walk round the Sculpure Park at Chatsworth with Carol.  

It was nice to meet Lesley from Tyne & Wear, and the girls from Coventry, Yasmin & Sandy (also with goth tendencies!); and Susan, Amanda; Tiffany from Scotland – your costumes were amazing! Loved the maid’s uniform and the Alice in Wonderland outfit at Chatsworth – got a good photo of you on the stairs.

It was me who was making the video on Saturdat night, but please be assured that I am not going to put any video footage on YouTube of anyone (esp. wives and partners) who don’t want to be included.  I’ll get together with Martine and see if there is some way we can use some edited highlights of Miss Rose 2008 with the permission of everyone involved – but without any panning shots – so only the contestants appear.

Or maybe I could put something together on a DVD just for release to Rose’s members who went to the Harmony Weekend?  I’d welcome your views.

I did get also get some nice still shots at Chatsworth and at the discos – I’d like to put these into a short YouTube presentation, but it will mainly be featuring Tiffany, Nina, Matine, my own Rose-Marie, and one or two people – like Susan – with whom we were sitting at the evening meals.  Could I do this – and if anyone wants there photo removed – of course I’ll take it out.  My YouTube Channel is specifically a transgender channel, and no one is likely to be looking at it who is not either transgendered themselves or interested in transgendered folk.  For those of you who are not familiar with YouTube, it really is a wonderful facility on the Internet – so do resereve judgement until you have had a look:
