Our Porthcawl shop got in the Elvis spirit this weekend to celebrate this years Elvis Festival, an event that takes place every September in Porthcawl. Elvis fans from across the world flock to the sea side town to take part in the event, that hosts over 100 shows to celebrate the king of rock 'n' roll!

The shop managers, Companions and volunteers decorated the shop window with donated Elvis themed items to celebrate the festival. They displayed Elvis magazines and memorabilia, an Elvis handbag and a very unusual Elvis wall tapestry, that definitely caught the attention of passers by.
