It isn’t every day you’re invited into one of Blackpool’s main visitor attractions with a sneak peak of what’s everyone’s been busily working on!
The 22nd March saw Campbell & Rowley supplying canapes and serving prosecco to a select group of VIP’s which included Amber from Love Island and Samia Ghadie (Maria) from Coronation Street (our staff certainly had a little star struck moment) for the launch of the new Marvel waxworks at Madame Tussaud’s.
As guests arrived our team offered out glasses of ice cold prosecco or orange juice for those that were being sensible right next to Keith Lemon – as you do! From here guests were able to walk around the ‘Big Night In’ section of the attraction before heading on upstairs to the Rovers Return where there was a complete working bar accompanied of course by C&R’s decadent canapes!
As the ‘pub’ filled, so did our guests stomachs! Platters of Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Crostini made their way out into the ever-growing crowd along side Mini Savoury Cheese Scones with Mushroom Pate & Fresh Fig (these smelt divine!), Beetroot, Passionfruit & Goats Cheese Filo Tartlets and Mini Quiches of Sun-Blushed Tomato, Parmesan & Pesto. It was safe to say all the canapes were devoured in a record time and all guests left with a smile on their face.
No rest for the wicked though! C&R were straight onto the next drinks station located at the entrance to the Marvel walk through where Spider Man was waiting in situ! A massive countdown, pyrotechnics and rapturous rounds of applause the attraction was officially open! A second glass of fizz was welcomingly accepted by the awe-struck VIP’s whilst taking in the attention to detail created in the old warehouse space! Interactive gaming walls, comics and beyond life size wax works with plenty of photo opportunities meant that everyone was in for a brilliant night!
It’s always a pleasure to work with Karen, Vicki and the team at Madame Tussaud’s and Merlin Entertainments. We’re certainly looking forward to receiving the call for when we start banqueting in there! If you haven’t been down to see it yet, what are you waiting for?
