Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium is exhibiting the waxwork before it moves on to Madame Tussauds next week
A waxwork of Ed Sheeran has gone on temporary display in a London cat café.
The sculpture is eventually destined to be permanently exhibited at Madame Tussauds in the capital, but it has made a quick stop at the cat-centric establishment in Bethnal Green.
Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium will host the waxwork of Sheeran for a week before it is permanently housed at Madame Tussauds. You can see the waxwork in question – as well as two of the cats who reside at Lady Dinah’s – in the below post from Madame Tussauds.
“Knowing what a pet lover he is, launching the figure at London’s renowned cat cafe felt like something the man himself would surely approve of,” Edward Fuller, general manager at Madame Tussauds in London, said in a statement about the waxwork’s detour.
This animal-themed excursion follows the news this week that Sheeran has had to put his plans to build a chapel on his private estate in East Anglia on hold so a search for great-crested newts can be conducted.
According to the Suffolk Wildlife Trust, a number of ponds on Sheeran’s estate “could be breeding sites for this species” – which are legally protected due to loss of habitat in recent years.
