"Behind the scenes," an exclusive backstage tour of London entertainment and performance venues, will take place on Thursday, September 12, immediately following the PLASA trade show at Earls Court. PLASA Media is offering a unique opportunity for participants to take a privileged technical tour of two of London's best-known entertainment institutions--the wonderfully atmospheric and newly refurbished Royal Albert Hall, and the fascinating Tussauds Group Studios, the creative heart of the world-famous visitor attraction specialist.

Tour participants will be transported by bus from Earls Court Exhibition Hall to Royal Albert Hall, for a backstage tour of the venue's recently-completed £70 million refurbishment. The tour will include both front-of-house and the historic auditorium, as well as the extensive state-of-the-art dimming installation and new loading bay--just two days before the RAH plays host to the renowned Last Night of the Proms. There will also be a chance for an informal chat with the technical crew.

This will be followed by lunch and a coach ride to the Tussauds Group Studios, for a unique tour that includes a demonstration of the creation of a wax model, from sculpting to wardrobe. A question and answer session will be followed by an opportunity to hear first-hand from the technical designers about how the many different projects and attractions of the Tussauds Group are put together, from concept through to completion, incorporating lighting, sound and visual design.

The cost for the day is just £75 (including VAT). There is limited availability for this tour, and demand is expected to be high, so participants are urged to register as quickly as possible.
