After dinner it was a quick walk down the street to Her Majesty's Theatre to see The Phantom of The Opera, now in its 28th year and still going strong. Composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Her Majesty's Theatre was where the show started, and has now been recreated round the world.
After the spellbinding performance, the contestants were invited to meet the cast and crew of the show, a very special occasion not often extended to guests. Words of advice were given to those contestants who have hopes of a career on the stage.
