A spectacular new Alpine-themed show combining extreme sports and circus skills made its debut at one of the UK’s most prestigious arenas, to huge critical acclaim.

The Area 51 production of ‘Alpine Nights’ is the ultimate après-ski experience: ice cool and an off-piste elegance with first class entertainment.

The creative team at the Warwickshire company transformed the interior of Coventry’s Ricoh Arena into a welcoming fantasy ski resort with log cabins serving festive drinks and glamorous bespoke-designed decor to transport guests into the heart of an Alpine world.

The Ricoh event consisted of a five-night run of corporate Christmas parties with Area 51 once again unleashing its creative designers, installation wizards and tip-top performers to come up with the goods.

Star of the actual show was the international BMX star Jack Clarke who provided spectacular stunts and routines on a lengthy ramped staging area to the delight of the huge audiences watching. Also featured in the show were a number of outstanding roller-bladers who were imitating roller skaters to maintain the snow-and-ice theme of the event.

Dancers performed a number of ice and snow-themed routines while aerial silk acts and fire breathers were also involved along with a live band and DJ, providing a full night of all-round entertainment.

Area 51 are now aiming to present this new show at different events throughout the year, fine tuning it and making adjustments – where necessary – to adapt to each new location and event.
