Hollyer Projects is a creative resource for visitor attractions. Richard Hollyer, owner and Director, has well over twenty years experience in the industry both as a project manager and a skilled craftsman.
Following a sculptural grounding in the 80s, Richard was employed by Merlin Studios (formerly Tussauds Group Studios) for nearly 18 years. During that time he headed up the moulding department, which creates the wax figures for Madame Tussauds globally, managed the wax figure maintenance team at Madame Tussauds London and finally became one of the Studio’s project managers in 2003, delivering increasingly complex projects for the ever-growing portfolio of Merlin attractions.
It is with the wealth of bespoke projects that Richard has handled over the years that Hollyer Projects can offer the management and delivery of creative installations. Richard is always keen to meet with clients at the earliest opportunity to discuss their requirements; to offer ideas and possible solutions for achieving their ultimate objective.

“Richard is a great team player and with a fantastic ‘can-do’ attitude. He’s worked on a wide range of projects here at the Merlin Studios from multi-million pound developments to small scale wax figure launches. No matter what the size of the task he has always completed it on time and on budget with meticulous attention to detail. What’s brilliant about Richard is that he does all of this with a smile and is genuinely a very friendly approachable person. His leadership inspires the best from his team and his organized yet pleasant manner makes him an absolute joy to work with. In essence a brilliant, down to earth, amiable and very reliable project manager.”
Paul Williams – Creative Director, Merlin Entertainments (Studios).
“Richard is an enthusiastic project manager and creative supplier who has provided THORPE PARK with themed solutions; from turning a plain car park kiosk in to a branded eye-catching statement, to vinyl wrapping the front ride car of Stealth (Europe’s fastest launch coaster) for a World Cup promotion, helping to achieve some fantastic press coverage.

His eye for detail has ensured excellent quality work that has stood up to the interaction of over 2 million visitors that THORPE PARK receives each year.”
