On Saturday 21st November 2015, Jean-Claude Van Damme hosted a world exclusive black tie dinner for fans and film buffs at Manchester’s Event City.
‘An Experience with’ Jean-Claude Van Damme saw ‘the Muscles From Brussels’ take part in a live interview with Jenni Falconer with all subjects covered, from his rise to fame, his film debut and his famous splits.

The once in a life time show, organised by leading events company Olexy Productions, who have hosted similar evenings with the likes of Al Pacino, Vinnie Jones and Arnold Schwarzenegger, was a sell out spectacle with just over 800 people in attendance.
As well as Van Damme fans also enjoyed the company of a whole host of famous faces including: Amir Khan, British actor and director Nick Nevern, Love Island’s Luis Morrison and partner Cally Jane Beech and Geordie Shore’s Jay Gardner, to name a few.

Stephen Oleksewycz, founder of Olexy Productions, said, “I am really proud of the team at Olexy Productions and our guests for making ‘An evening with’ Jean-Claude Van Damme such a huge success, it was definitely a night to remember. I’m delighted to see how far we have come over the last few years – but there’s always more we can do to keep our exclusive experiences fresh and different from any other VIP dinner. We are looking forward to our up-coming events with Arnold Schwarzenegger in January; they just keep getting bigger and better, watch this space”.
Alongside the main attraction, the exclusive, star studded night also saw performances from live Jazz band Goosebumps, a martial arts display, celebrity interviewer Jenni Falconer and a charity auction of bespoke and exclusively signed Jean-Claude Van Damme memorabilia which raised thousands of pounds for the charity Candlelighters which supports children with cancer and their families.
