BREXIT: A SCARY-TALE ENDING?

Halloween party animals caught up in the contemporary tale of horror that is Brexit, were given the fright – and the laugh – of their lives! With a pandemic of political dissonance affecting the country, Brexit’s poisoning of representative democracy, a zombie government and the stench of its decomposing Westminster corpse, it was left to Area 51 to finally find some fun from the shambles.

Halloween party animals caught up in the contemporary tale of horror that is Brexit, were given the fright – and the laugh – of their lives!

With a pandemic of political dissonance affecting the country, Brexit’s poisoning of representative democracy, a zombie government and the stench of its decomposing Westminster corpse, it was left to Area 51 to finally find some fun from the shambles.

And in conjunction with the Heart Of England Conference & Events Centre, Area 51 invented a Halloween spooktacular that equally poked fun of both sides of Brexit in front of hundreds of revellers with a chilling Wicker Man slant.

“Brextremists” and zombie “remaniacs” abounded as partygoers arrived at the entertainment location in north Warwickshire “of their own free will” to be guided through a scare maze and a chilling experience that produced screams and howls of laughter in equal amounts.

As punters arrived on Brexit D-Day, 2019 – which coincidentally turned out to be October 31, they were transported by train into the woods to be told THEY would be sacrificed Wicker Man style on the altar of Brexit while the distorted strains of the “Jerusalem” hymn remixed with excerpts from the Wicker Man soundtrack, brought goosebumps.

A grotesque Prime Minister Boris Johnson character assimilated into the Pennywise clown from Stephen King’s “It”, roared into view on a zip wire while holding union flags, harking back to the time when Britain’s political leader became stuck hanging from a similar contraption in central London a few years ago.
A Theresa “Maybot” monster sent chills down the spine while a noisy group of axe-wielding “remaniac” zombies protesting against Brexit added terror to the experience.

Visitors were then sent hurtling through an anathematic labyrinth of fear and loathing with all manners of monstrosities appearing from nooks and crannies to inspire shock before they were finally led away for a first class dining experience followed by an evening of party entertainment.
