Area 51 despatched its own exotic “fire brigade” to help make an annual fireworks display a huge success.

A team of fire and stilt performers, together with the popular ten-foot tall 51 Qetz character, burst on to the stage to wow thousands of onlookers at Rugby’s Bonfire Night display in central England, co-ordinating acts with a panorama of pyro-technology that left punters purring.

Sporting Area 51’s much-loved tropical Tiki tribe costumes, the crew took part in a walkabout session before taking to the stage for the main event with a choreographed show that linked to the fireworks display.

The event is organised annually by Rugby Round Table and helps raise money for local charities and good causes. The 2015 event featured live gigs by three bands plus a DJ spot before the finale when Area 51 crew’s visually stunning routines soared.

THE TROLL

The world’s only walking, talking animatronic Troll, measuring a mighty 9ft tall and 7ft wide.
