At the selection event we would like you to stand up and answer one of these 3 questions:
•    What attraction do you head to first on Gala Day?
•    What is your favourite Gala memory?
•    What part of the Gala Royalty role would you look forward to most?

You will also be asked to read out this opening speech:

Our panel simply want to see if you can speak clearly and confidently in public. 
The panel will be three people who have no personal connection with any of the applicants. 
Every applicant that passes the public speaking test will have their name put in to a hat and the Royalty and attendants will then be drawn at random.

 

After the draw has taken place a photograph of the Gala Royalty will be taken for the Gala Day programme.
