AN ENGLISH village fete was remodelled as a magical microcosm of fantasy and reverie after Area 51’s architects of dreams went to work…

Quintessentially quirky and quixotically English, the fair held in deepest Oxfordshire, was a hive of the illusory after creatives and entertainers from the Warwickshire company created an event to live long in both the memory… and the imagination.

Around 50 amazing acts took part in the fete at Mixbury Hall with its grounds becoming a fertile garden of inventiveness that would have delighted the likes of C.S. Lewis, J.R. Tolkien and Terry Pratchett.

Stilt-walking fauns were joined by unicorns, mermaids and fairies plus a host of performance artists including magicians, a Victorian strongman, contortionists, acrobats, aerial performers, hula hoopers, walkabout characters, fire performers and dancers.

Area 51’s much-loved birdcage décor was installed on site and the company came up with an afternoon of entertainment that was family-orientated and suitable for children of ALL ages.
