Case Study: The Voice Kids Press Event
31 July 2018
For the second year running, we were honoured to host the press launch of ITV’s The Voice Kids UK at one of our fantastic London party venues: Madame Tussauds London. Merlin Events and the Madame Tussauds London team hosted press and the famous faces from the second series of the popular show, coaches will.i.am, Pixie Lott and Danny Jones alongside host Emma Willis. Home to The Voice UK experience – launched back in February 2017 and complete with will.i.am’s own figure and red coaches’ chairs – the famous Baker Street attraction made for the perfect setting to debut the new series and answer all those burning questions about what the show had in store for 2018.
The event began with a glamorous photo call for the famous foursome in the red-carpeted front entrance of Madame Tussauds London before the press guests enjoyed a drinks reception, exclusive viewing of the second series’ first episode and a Q&A with the show’s stars.
Emma Willis was of course on hand to make sure everything went smoothly for the coaches, dressed in a stunning full-length powder blue dress. Pixie Lott wore a figure hugging polka dot dress, willi.i.am was looking ever cool in a black blazer with white lapel trim accompanied with matching sneakers. Former McFly singer Danny kept it simple and stylish with a white shirt and black trousers.

Press were treated to a drinks reception and refreshments by Food by Dish in the attraction’s A-List Party room amongst some of the newest figures in Madame Tussauds London: the royal couple Harry and Meghan, Tom Hardy and Eddie Redmayne to name a few. In our 4D cinema, which holds over 200 guests, guests were treated to some popcorn as they watched a preview of the first episode of The Voice Kids UK 2018. Finally, the Q&A hosted by Emma Willis was held in the attraction’s World Stage Ballroom where press guests could get time with the three coaches on The Voice UK experience stage followed by round-tables with each celebrity coach, all whilst dining on vegan buddha bowls and an assortment of other cuisine such as tandoori salmon.
