Lonely Street

No this posting is not about the Tory candidate in Hartlepool, though now I come to think about it....

I was in Porthcawl last night for a public meeting about the proposed off-shore wind farm at Scarweather Sands. After the meeting I was told about the three day Porthcawl Elvis Festival on 1st to 3rd October. The website is here, make sure you have your speakers switched on. Apparently, the Festival is to consist of performances by Elvie Nominees in many local pubs, Elvis memorabilia exhibition, a 24 Hour Elvis ‘Film-Fest’, the European Premiere of new Elvis movie, the Ultimate Elvis Trivia Quiz, an Elvis ‘Chapel of Love’ mass wedding blessings, Elvis weddings, an Open Elvis karaoke, photo and autograph opportunities with Elvis celebrities and a grand seaside promenade of Elvis tribute acts.

My favourite page though is the one detailing the latest news. This includes 'The Porthcawl Mayor and Mayoress announce that they will be renewing their marriage vows during the Festival in a recreation of the famous wedding scene from Blue Hawaii', that 'Linda Gail Lewis (Jerry Lee's sister) is going to close the Festival on the Sunday afternoon', and that 'the Brentwood Hotel announces that it will be changing its name to 'Heartbreak Hotel' The Town respond by changing the name of the road it's on to Lonely Street.'
