Teenage Nights To Continue At SkyDome

Itís time for the kids to party in Coventry, with the cityís largest nightclub being given over to teenagers for two evenings in August.

An event last night at SkyDome Coventry sold out in record time despite having a capacity of nearly 2,500.

Management at the complex have now acted quickly to give youngsters aged between 14 and 17-years-old the chance to attend more sessions.

Ikon and Diva will play host to two more 'Club Culture' events, on 8 August and 22 August, after booking top chart acts to entertain the revellers.

SkyDome operations manager Les Richards confirmed the August dates.

He said:

"The response to Club Culture has been immense and tickets for the event just held sold at a rate of 500 a day.

"What has appealed to the teenagers is the fact that we are not just giving them a venue to dance in, we are providing them with top entertainment.

"For the August dates we have already booked DJ Deekline who peformed the chart hit 'I Don't Smoke' and Oxide Neutrino whose 'Casualty' tune reached number one.

"Club Culture came about because we listened to feedback from local youngsters about a lack of events targeted for them. The last thing we want is for some of them to miss out - hence the further dates."

Richards also revealed the nights had won praise from parents for their attempts to provide a secure environment.

He said:

"We remove alcohol from the bar taps, there are no gambling machines and the fridges are blacked out for these events.

"We have also paid to employ police officers specifically to attend Ikon and Diva for Club Culture to add extra peace of mind."

Admission is £6 in advance and tickets can be purchased at the SkyDome Box Office situated in Jumpin Jaks, which will be open 10am - 5pm Monday to Saturday.
