    This is it, people. The moment has arrived.

    Following a one-off, sell-out show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe last summer, Tim Vine is bringing Plastic Elvis to your town.

    Backed by an amazing five-piece, The High Noon Band, Plastic Elvis will shake, smoulder, and try to control his hair. In the end, he’ll break your heart as he belts out some of the King’s greatest hits. With special guests John Archer as Big Buddy Holly, and songwriting legend David Martin (who wrote four songs for the real Elvis). Tim says: “This isn’t a stand up show, but a concert dedicated to my favourite performer. When I was eleven years old, I would stand in front of my bedroom mirror and mime to the whole of 1972’s Elvis: As Recorded at Madison Square Garden album. This is a tribute act that is forty years in the making. Well, the waiting is over. It’s time to go public.”

    Warning: this show may contain moves that even Plastic Elvis himself isn’t expecting.

    "His charisma stunned me" – Plastic Elvis fan

    "From the opening fanfare to the emotional finale I was hooked" – The other fan

    Pride in the Park postponed - further details here

    The line-up for Cheshire East Council’s Pride in the Park 2020 event has been announced and there are some big acts leading the way, as it moves into its third year.

    The headline act for the event at Queens Park, Crewe on Saturday 20 June, is Bang Bang Romeo. The Doncaster three piece supported Pink last year on her European tour playing in front of huge crowds throughout the summer and recently released their debut album ‘A Heartbreaker’s Guide to the Galaxy.’

    Bang Bang Romeo

    Sam Callahan will also be appearing on the day at Queens Park. Sam was an X Factor finalist on the tenth series of the talent show and has become more and more involved in the  LGBT+ scene having performed at Pride events around the world. He’s also enjoying a prolific modelling career and has been on the front cover of Gay Times twice.

    Danny Beard is another big crowd-puller who will be at this year’s Cheshire East event. He is a performer, singer and cabaret artist who made his name as Drag Idol winner in 2015 before going on to be a semi-finalist on Britain’s Got Talent the following year.

    Councillor Jill Rhodes Cheshire East Council cabinet member for public health and corporate services, said: “It’s brilliant news to be having all these top quality acts performing at our Cheshire East Pride event in Crewe and I know that residents and visitors will come in their numbers to support the day.”

    There will also be DJs, a magician and an opportunity for an open mic competition winner to appear at the Queens Park Pride event.

    The council’s first open mic event for Pride will be held at Tom’s Tap and Brewhouse on Thomas Street in Crewe on Sunday 29 March from 3pm. That event will be compered by William Read, who himself enjoyed success as part of the group ‘The Showbears’ on Britain’s Got Talent.

    Anyone can come along and have a go, it doesn’t matter what your act is!

    Councillor Stewart Gardiner, Cheshire East Council member equality champion, said: “I’m really looking forward to Cheshire East Pride mark three. Following on from two previous successful events I am sure this year’s will be even better. I am particularly excited to see that we are attracting a crop of current stars to our event.”

    Al Murray the one and only Pub Landlord will be bringing his extended sell-out tour of Landlord of Hope And Glory to Buxton Opera House.

    The year is 2020. The world stands on the brink. Turmoil is the norm. Questions have been asked and none answered. What we need is one man, to step forward, one man with all the answers.

    Well you’re in luck, ladies and gentlemen - he’s here and touring the nation.

    The Pub Landlord said about the show: “Citizens of Hope and Glory! Our new tomorrow beckons. A new tomorrow that smells reassuringly of yesterday, but with wifi.  One last heave and we will be there. And when the going gets tough the tough get going. Although the going won’t get tough and anyone who tells you it is going to be tough is lying.  Come join me to marvel at the majesty of our green and pleasant land. A land globally renowned for our culture, history and places, like the world-famous Salisbury Cathedral.  Join me to step backwards into the future.”

    For over 20 years Al Murray, The Pub Landlord has filled the biggest venues around the UK, including London’s 02 Arena and the iconic Royal Albert Hall.  He has won numerous awards, hosted many critically acclaimed television shows, and in 2015 famously stood for election in the hotly contested seat of South Thanet.

     Al Murray: Landlord of Hope and Glory is at Buxton Opera House on Thursday 30 July at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at £30.50. General booking opens on Friday 7 February. Discounts are not available. To buy tickets contact Buxton Opera House Box Office, Tel: 01298 72190 or visit: www.buxtonoperahouse.org.uk
