Saturday December 20 is a date for your diary as Elvis mania is about to hit the town – it’s guaranteed to have you all shook up!

It’s now or never to ensure you don’t miss this spectacular event at 20-21 Visual Art Centre in Scunthorpe.

The Kings of England open day will be full of live performances, costume making, karaoke and Elvis inspired shenanigans. You can even dress up as Elvis using outfits from the dressing up box and have your photo taken on the golden throne!

It is estimated that there are more than 85,000 Elvis Presley impersonators around the world, in a phenomenon spanning countries, cultures and religions.

Graeme Oxby presents his photographic survey of The Kings of England, featuring dramatic, intriguing and often amusing photographic portraits of impersonators he has tracked down at conventions and tribute concerts across the country.

The results prove that Elvis is still alive in the hearts and minds of enthusiasts from every age, location and background.

Don’t miss the open day – 10am to 4pm Saturday 20 December at 20-21 Visual Art Centre, Church Square, Scunthorpe. The event is free. Under 8s must be accompanied by a participating adult.

The exhibition runs from Saturday 20 December 2014 until 21 February 2015. For more details, visit www.northlincs.gov.uk.

North Lincolnshire Council deputy leader Councillor John Briggs said: “This exhibition is always on my mind, ever since we started planning the event. If you don’t want a blue Christmas this year, put on your blue suede shoes and head down to 20-21 Visual Art Centre, where you won’t be able to help falling in love with what’s in store!”
