Alan Carr Madam Tussaud’s – The exciting new season programme from Blackpool Grand Theatre got the seal of approval from the Alan Carr and Craig Revel Horwood waxworks at Madame Tussaud’s.

Whilst the ‘Chatty Man’ host wasn’t too chatty at the photoshoot, the support highlights the incredible line-up of A-list comedians set to perform at the iconic venue, including Jason Manford, Frank Skinner, Tim Vine and Alan himself, who performs his new stand-up show, ‘Regional Trinket’ at The Blackpool Grand Theatre (September).

Star of BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing, Craig Revel Horwood, also a popular figure at Madame Tussaud’s, was spotted at the attraction with the programme in hand and will appear in person at The Grand Theatre in May 2022 with his debut solo show – The All Balls and Glitter Tour.

Stuart Jarman from Merlin Entertainments and Madame Tussaud’s, said: “Blackpool’s best attractions are pulling together in the bounce-back, with visitor numbers growing each day.  The staycation boom and the resort’s reputation as a brilliant holiday and day-trip choice means that we are making up for lost time in encouraging and entertaining visitors back to the area.”

About Madam Tussaud’s

Who is Madam Tussaud? Millions and millions of people have flocked through the doors of Madame Tussauds since they first opened over 185 years ago (1835) founded by wax sculptor Marie Tussaud at ‘The Baker Street Bazaar.’ and the establishment remains just as popular as it ever was. There are many reasons for this enduring success, but at the heart of it, all is good old-fashioned curiosity.

Each subject is invited for seating to be able to get the right body measurements. However, if the subject is a historical figure or has already passed away, a team of researchers will check and dig on hundreds of pictures and get the measurements from there.
All portraits displayed in Madame Tussauds have their hair washed and make-up retouched regularly.

There are two maintenance teams that check each figure daily before the museum opens.
