SOLAR SCI-FI WEEKENDER

Area 51 looked to the heavens for cosmic inspiration to eclipse past triumphs with a stellar display at a celebrated gathering of diehard sci-fi fans. The sun, moon and 51 were all in conjunction as performers used the grand spectacle of the solar eclipse as part of their show at the acclaimed sixth Sci-Fi Weekender staged at Hafan y Mor holiday village in Pwllheli, North Wales. A partial solar eclipse - said to be the most impressive seen from the British Isles since 1999 - provided the cue as the opening performance by the Area 51 crew began in earnest.

Area 51 looked to the heavens for cosmic inspiration to eclipse past triumphs with a stellar display at a celebrated gathering of diehard sci-fi fans. The sun, moon and 51 were all in conjunction as performers used the grand spectacle of the solar eclipse as part of their show at the acclaimed sixth Sci-Fi Weekender staged at Hafan y Mor holiday village in Pwllheli, North Wales. A partial solar eclipse – said to be the most impressive seen from the British Isles since 1999 – provided the cue as the opening performance by the Area 51 crew began in earnest.

This year they produced an inspired dance routine based on the popular Hellboy cartoon theme – with guest appearance by specialist costume creator Ian “Chef” Sparrowhawk. Also featured was a reworking of part of the successful 51 production of ‘Lost in Wonderland’ which had debuted at the Ricoh Arena a few months earlier. Mechanika also made a much-lauded appearance on stage while illusionist Caspian staged a very well received performance as well as The Devil Without by Ian Harvey Stone. Area 51 performers also provided walkabout and fire performances.

We would like to thank both Boon Images and JC Allsop Photography for the images shown.
