I find it unlikely they wd give u an interview date for when office is closed so i see no reason to worry. To put ur mind at ease u can always check online to see which days each office is open.

It is something to do with your council, I suppose.

I received my approval letter on Friday, and same day booked the [public] ceremony for the following Monday.

It's less than a month since you applied so I would relax abit if I were you. Applications seems to be processing faster these days so all going well you should hear from them by mid next month or so.
