    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.

    Queen's Park, Crewe, Cheshire

    Crewe Town Council are the main sponsors of the LGBT+ community in Cheshire East which will take place at Queens Park, in Crewe, on Saturday 20 June 2020.

    Pride in the Park welcomes people from Cheshire East and beyond, offering family-friendly entertainment and activities, a vibrant parade and a dedicated marketplace of LGBT+ organisations to help offer advice and information for visitors.

    This celebratory event will feature a health and wellbeing marketplace for visitors to receive key help and support from organisations such as Body Positive, Transforum Manchester and Diversity Role Models. Cheshire East partner agencies, including Cheshire police and Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service, will also attend.

    Councillor Jill Rhodes, Cheshire East Council cabinet member with responsibility for equality and diversity, said: “We are delighted Crewe Town Council has made the decision to again get involved with Pride in the Park 2020. Putting on such a major event for the LGBT+ community, which last year attracted 5,000 visitors, would not be possible without the generous and enthusiastic support of Crewe Town Council and other sponsors, partners and community organisations.”

    “Pride in the Park continues to grow and already there is a real sense of excitement among all those involved for the event next year. Everyone is really looking forward to the big day.”

    Councillor Tom Dunlop, chair of Crewe Town Council's community plan committee, said: “Crewe Town Council is incredibly proud to once again be a part of Pride in the Park coming in to 2020, as we celebrate both the equality and diversity of our local communities, by continuing our support for the LGBT+ community - not only in Crewe but around the country.”

    “I attended the event in 2019, and had the pleasure of meeting many wonderful people who had travelled from far and wide to attend the event, which was held in our beautiful Queens Park - and I am so pleased that the event will be returning to the park this year. The atmosphere was fantastic, the parade was awash with vibrancy and colour, the performers all did an outstanding job, the crowd were happy – and the weather was mostly good too!”

    Other sponsors who have signed up to support Pride in the Park include Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, HSL Compliance and Cheshire East Council's arms-length company Ansa Environmental Services.
