Brand-new waxwork sculptures of Harry Styles are to be unveiled at seven Madame Tussauds sites across the world.
After what the world-famous tourist attraction has admitted was “thousands of fan requests”, Madame Tussauds has confirmed that seven new waxwork figures of the beloved Cheshire-born singer-songwriter are to be installed and unveiled in a handful of major cities across the world.
The 28-year-old first appeared in Madame Tussauds attractions alongside his former One Direction bandmates a decade ago.
But this time around, he’s standing solo.
Visitors to Madame Tussauds sites in London, New York, Hollywood, Amsterdam, Berlin, Singapore, and Sydney will be able to “get up close and personal” with the multi award-winning popstar and actor from this month, according to the attraction – with the waxworks striking seven different poses inspired by some of Harry’s appearances worldwide.
The lifelike new waxwork figures took the expert artists at Madame Tussauds over 10 months to create.
According to the artists, the waxwork’s striking outfits are “a nod to [Harry’s] fashion credentials”, as well as his recent career venture into acting, as the London sculpture in particular is inspired by the iconic look he wore at the My Policeman premiere back in 2022.
Fans will be able to snap a selfie with the sculpture donning a double-breasted hunter green blazer, with a large flower broach, pistachio green trousers, ivory boots, and the all-important bright green handbag he paired it with.
The other six waxworks will also be seen wearing some of Harry’s most-famous and memorable red carpet looks from over the last decade.
“Harry is one of the biggest stars in the world right now,” explained Angela Jobson, Global Brand Director Madame Tussauds, ahead of the sculptures being unveiled.
She continued: “When the opportunity came up, there was no hesitation, so we jumped at the chance to add the superstar to our collection, and we cannot wait for fans to see him at any one of the seven venues worldwide.”
Tim Waters, who is the General Manager at Madame Tussauds in London, also added that the attraction can’t wait to welcome the waxwork to the UK’s capital city, and that the launch of the seven new sculptures across the world is “a testament to Harry’s incredible star power”.
“We know this will be a dream come true for all his fans as thousands have requested his figure over the last couple of years,” he concluded.
Whether you can believe it or not, it’s actually been two whole decades since the 2003 Christmas cult classic that is Elf was released to the world, and with December literally just a few days away now, there’s no better way to celebrate this special anniversary than seeing the film return to the big screen for a limited time only.
From this week, you can head on down to Vue cinemas in both Manchester Printworks and inside Quayside MediaCity, as well as others throughout the region, to watch the beloved festive flick.
Going on to become a much-loved festive favourite that’s watched by families all over the world every time December rolls around, Elf is a Christmas comedy film that tells the story of a human raised by Santa’s elves.
As Buddy grows older, he eventually learns about his origins, and heads to New York City on a mission to meet his biological father.
Directed by on Favreau and written by David Berenbaum Elf has been hailed by many as a modern classic, and it’s often listed as one of the best Christmas films of all time.
It stars legendary comic actor Will Ferrell as the title character Buddy the Elf, alongside a talented ensemble cast of famous faces such as Zooey Deschanel, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Bob Newhart, Jon Favreau, Peter Dinklage, and more in supporting roles.
Ferrell’s performance as Buddy was also praised by critics and audiences alike at the time of the film’s release, and many have even called it one of the best performances of his career.
Speaking ahead of Elf’s return to cinemas this Christmas, Mike Anton, who is the General Manager of Vue Manchester Printworks, said: “Christmas is all about spending quality time with friends and family, and creating treasured moments to last a lifetime.
“So we’re glad to be marking the merry occasion with a lineup of some of the most iconic and beloved Christmas classics.”
Tickets to see Elf at Vue Manchester Printworks and Vue Manchester Quayside are now available to get your hands on from just £4.99 when booked online here.
If you also find yourself at a loose end in Manchester city centre over the next couple of weeks, there’s another a little hidden cinema tucked away inside popular hotel King Street Townhouse that’s screening a jam-packed lineup of classic Christmas films throughout December too – including Love Actually, Home Alone, and How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
You can also sip on festive cocktails, and snack on popcorn and pick n mix while you watch all the festive flicks too.

You can see the Northern Lights as part of a ‘mesmerising’ science show in Manchester this winter
Mancs will get a glimpse of the Northern Lights as part of a “mesmerising” science show happening in our city this winter.
As the nights draw in, the air gets colder by the day, and the festive season nears closer and closer, Manchester’s Science and Industry Museum is an ideal place shelter from the harsh winter conditions outside.
And luckily, there’s a packed lineup of events for everyone to get stuck into over the next few weeks.
The massively-popular cultural destination – which has recently celebrated 40 years since opening on its original site in the heart of the city centre – is inviting families to head on down and discover “the secrets of light and colour” through a series of illuminating activities, special shows, and immersive experiences.
Opening on Saturday 16 December, and running for a limited time only, ‘Light Lab’ promises to “brighten up the winter holidays with an adventure though light and colour”.
Visitors will get the chance to make light perform jaw-dropping tricks, create colours, and spark creativity as they experiment with reflections, before getting to “journey from the Sun back to the Earth” during a series of special science shows led by the museum’s team of expert Explainers.
They’ll also be able to discover how light travels through our atmosphere, find out why the sky is blue, and explore the science of solar flares too.
During the special science shows, you’ll even get to “marvel at a mesmerising display” of the Northern Lights too – with real NASA footage of the Aurora Borealis to be shown up close.
For those after something a little different, and fancy learning a thing or two this festive season, then on Tuesday 12 December, visitors can take a front row seat for the live recording of the CHRISTMAS LECTURES from the Royal Institution ahead of its broadcast on the BBC.
Aside from that, the Museum’s currently-ongoing resident and guest exhibitions are remaining open to visit throughout the winter too.
This means visitors can also discover the inner workings of the digestive system in world-premiere exhibition, Operation Ouch! Food, Poo and You, be whisked away to new worlds with ultimate gaming experience, Power Up, or see science and “mighty machines” in action in the Museum’s interactive gallery, Experiment, and in the Textiles Gallery too.
On top of that, they can also “discover world changing ideas” in Revolution Manchester, and get up close and personal with incredible objects from Professor Stephen Hawking’s office, which are also on display.
