The way in which we offer Elvis events both here and in the UK changed dramitically over the latter part of 2012. Most of you will know that we have now joined forces with David Wade at The Elvis Presley Travel Service / Strictly Elvis and we feel that David really is the leader in putting together Elvis events and trips to the USA, and has been since 1972.
After an explosive 3-day bash organised solely by Essential Elvis UK in Memphis in which we arranged for a total of sixteen guests to meet fans at Elvis' father former home on Dolan Drive (including Marty Lacker, Billy Smith and Linda Thompson), we feel it's time to take a rest and allow David and his team to do what they do best. What we acheived during Elvis Week 2012 means that we can move aside after offering the ultimate in events. We will now work with David in promoting / sponsoring what we know are the best UK events and the most professional USA trips.
This does not mean the end of Essential Elvis UK events. At present I'd say that we're 'burnt out' and would rather concentrate on ensuring that we produce and promote the UK's #1 Elvis magazine. We may, sometime in the future, organise a get together here in Sussex, but until then you will find us more relaxed and happy at events staged by David.
So, we are delighted to recommend the follow events...
