Coventry Kids Get Ready For First Birthday Bash

Coventry teenagers are all set to celebrate the first anniversary of an event which has put them on the map.

The 'Club Culture' nights held at SkyDome's Ikon and Diva outlets have been providing local 14 to 17-year-olds with evening entertainment for a year - during which time over 15,000 youngsters have been catered for.

The success of the concept since its launch 12 months ago has now led to several other venues in the 250-strong Luminar Leisure chain using Coventry's example as a blueprint for similar nights.

Now SkyDome bosses, who empty beer taps, black out alcohol fridges and remove gaming machines for the events, want to put on a birthday bash to celebrate a year of 'Club Culture'.

The party is on Tuesday 20 February, and SkyDome manager Ian Knight believes it marks a major success for the city.

He said:

"Coventry and Warwickshire teenagers have really entered into the 'Club Culture' spirit over the past year and we have had some fantastic nights.

"The idea has really been embraced by parents, schools and youngsters alike - I think it was an age bracket that was not previously being catered for.

"The fact that so many other big cities and towns have followed Coventry's example shows that was a nationwide trend and it is great to think we have helped address that."

Tickets for the event are available from the Jumpin Jaks-based SkyDome box office and are priced at 6 - they can also be purchased on the night.

However, Knight is advising teenagers to snap them up early to avoid disappointment.

He said:

"Our capacity of 1,800 means we can accommodate more youngsters than most places around the country who run this kind of event but our tickets still sell-out very quickly.

"The majority of 'Club Culture' events we have held over the year have been full to capacity and we are certainly expecting that on the 20th."
