Wonder Woman emerges as Dom goes up for sale

  • Comment

The New Millennium Experience Company's teasing dripfeed of information about what will happen to the Dome after the show is over, and what will go into it while it's on, gathered pace last week.

It emerged that Goldman Sachs, the investment bank, has been appointed to look for a buyer for the £40 million building and has had three expressions of interest, who are looking to use it for leisure, theme park, retail, or exhibition use.

Meanwhile, the 20-40m-tall Millennium Man (AJ 8.1.98) by HP: ICM will now be a 'Britannia' mother and child, with sponsorship possibilities arising particularly from the baby clutching a real car. But Peter Mandelson dejected rumour-mongers who claimed that BT was about to pull its £12 million pledge.

A 'litmus' group of advisers on Dome contents includes chairman Michael Grade, RCA rector Christopher Frayling, Tussauds chairman and chief executive Michael Jolly . . . and children's television's Floella Benjamin. A further unveiling of Dome contents will take place next week for press and corporate clients.
