DIARY: Gloves are off as Lexis PR is brought in to promote schookids' fight club

Lexis PR has been drafted in to promote a holiday camp at which schoolkids learn how best to smash each other over the head with bottles.

Sadly, (for those with a love of extreme violence), the bottles will be made of sugar-glass.

The consumer shop was brought in last week to promote what it is billing as 'the world's first-ever stunt camp, where children learn stunts from blockbuster movies'.

Greg Powell, who has co-ordinated stunts on the Harry Potter film trilogy, will train the brave PR consultants on how to teach kids to fly like the famed bespectacled wizard, and, Lexis's release claims, 'learn the stunts from a bar-room brawl'.

The first camp will be held at Epsom College, Surrey, later this month - and there are also plans for adult and corporate camps.

Lexis director Marilyn Wicks says: 'It's for the sort of kids who want to jump down from the top of their bunk beds. In terms of bar-room brawls, kids love Westerns - they'll be using bolsa-wood chairs and sugar-glass bottles. All harmless fun,' she insists.
