Porthcawl Elvis Festival - The Premier UK and European festival to celebrate the life and music of Elvis Aaron Presley and the Tribute Artists that keep his name alive. - Go To Our Home Page

The Official Shows take place in Porthcawl’s magnificent and historic Grand Pavilion. Once again we retain the popular Floorshow format that turns the venue into a full blown ‘Elvis in Vegas’ experience. People seated downstairs can enjoy a running bar throughout the evening with cabaret style seating at tables. This format significantly reduces the capacity of the Pavilion so you are advised to book early in order to avoid disappointment. 

This year we have a combination of our traditional shows along with a sensational new production you will not want to miss.
