The Festival is essentially the same as the Prestige:
Unstained wood, silver plating, Gore-Tex pads. A slightly different bore
and sound than the Festival. Cost - around $2200 or so.

Well, my son plays his Festivals with a Hawkins mouthpiece & Pyne
string ligature. We (I :^) bought them at this years ClarinetFest - he
played just about every clarinet there and liked *these* particular
Festivals better than any other clarinets we could find there. And there
were a lot!
