Following the final curtain there will be a ten minute interval during which time the Festival Company will be presented to Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.

During this time, the curtain will be down and we ask that members of the audience remain in their seats until the Royal Party makes its departure through the auditorium.
