Payne & Gunter, part of Compass Group UK & Ireland, have been accredited caterers with Madame Tussaud’s for over 20 years. This iconic venue (which can hold up to 380 for a dinner, or 1000 standing) takes you on a fantastic journey from the red carpet arrival onto the ‘Spirit of London’ ride, into ‘Party’ and finally through to ‘World Stage’ where Ed Sheeran will be joining a host of A class celebrities.
Madame Tussauds London recently unveiled the attraction’s long-awaited figure of the iconic British pop star, Ed Sheeran, coinciding with his mammoth UK tour. Standing ‘gig ready’ with his trusty electro acoustic guitar in hand, Ed’s likeness was unveiled this morning in a rather unusual location – Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium in Bethnal Green, London’s famous cat café.
As Ed brought his 206-date tour to Wembley Stadium, the world-famous attraction unveiled the four-time Grammy winner’s figure at the feline wonderland to reflect his love of cats and notoriety for impromptu, private gigs.
Bethan James, Operations Director at Payne & Gunter said: “Ed Sheeran is undoubtedly one of the biggest musicians of our time and we are sure that his presence at one of our favourite venues, Madame Tussauds, will encourage both corporate and private events alike to book this fantastic space for their next party”.
Looking like he’s about to take to the stage sporting his famous tattoos, red hair and a check shirt Ed’s likeness is available for guests to see in attraction NOW. The figure is stood alongside a giant interactive guitar that guests can play to bring Ed’s songs to life. Joining a plethora of home-grown British musicians such as Adele and One Direction, Ed’s figure is the first music addition to the famous London attraction in 2018.
