BLOOMIN’ BRILLIANT!

Have you heard the one about a badger, rabbit and mole walk into a conference centre in the shadow of Westminster Abbey and Big Ben? Sounds far-fetched? Not when Area 51 are in town! And at the QEII Conference Centre in Westminster, three larger-than-life anthropomorphic characters held sway in an enchanting forest to enraptured guests. Specs the mole, a hip bebop jazz trumpeter, was joined by Mr. Badger, a theatrical “luvvie” and Ms. Rabbit, a culinary queen who also sang like Ella Fitzgerald.

Have you heard the one about a badger, rabbit and mole walk into a conference centre in the shadow of Westminster Abbey and Big Ben?

Sounds far-fetched? Not when Area 51 are in town! And at the QEII Conference Centre in Westminster, three larger-than-life anthropomorphic characters held sway in an enchanting forest to enraptured guests. Specs the mole, a hip bebop jazz trumpeter, was joined by Mr. Badger, a theatrical “luvvie” and Ms. Rabbit, a culinary queen who also sang like Ella Fitzgerald.

The three characters were expertly brought to life by Area 51 performers at a brilliant high-profile event.

The QEII staged a stunning showcase entitled “Bloom” for the events industry and Area 51, together with EventTrees, provided remarkable jaw-dropping décor as well as the three performing creatural creations.

The centre’s fifth-floor Cambridge Room was brilliantly denatured into a sophisticated and beguiling world of floral joy.

Guests arrived through a leafy, herbaceous walkway lit with twinkling fairy lights to emerge into the central chamber of the underground themed space and were offered cocktails from reach of the characters: Ms. Rabbit’s sugar snap pea, lime and mint gin; Mr. Badger’s vanilla and chai vodka; and Specs’ negroni-styled tequila, mezcal, Aperold and rose vermouth.

Each character had its own idiosyncratic space to hold sway in: Mr. Badger strutted in his own intimate theatre, Specs jive-talked in his swinging jazz club hang-out while Ms. Rabbit dominated in her hipster café.

Later visitors to the event were ushered up to the sixth-floor Mountbatten Room where they emerged inside a giant blossoming daffodil that incorporated the whole room thanks to Area 51 design and installation experts, complete with towering petals and floor-to-ceiling projections plus audio of bees buzzing around.

After dinner Ms. Rabbit entertained guests with her own cabaret show.
