Cliff, Brian May, that kid that won Britain’s Got Talent, step aside. The real star of this year’s Royal Variety Performance is a piece of graphic design…

Hampton-based design studio elliottyoung was commissioned by the Entertainment Artiste’s Benevolent Fund (EABF) to create a one-off programme cover to mark the 80th Royal Variety performance (which is on 11 December).

Elliottyoung, in turn, commissioned embroidery specialists Hand & Lock to stitch a design featuring the RVP’s logo and the Prince of Wales’ crest using silver and gold wire.

Chas and Camilla will be handed this special edition programme for the event – the rest of the audience will have to make do with a printed facsimile if they want to know what time the Pussycat Dolls are coming on.
