Elvis will be back in the building at New Mills Art Theatre as The King And Us Too returns for a two-night stay on Friday and Saturday.

There are guest spots from the talented young performers Musical Roots and Cymballisticks an amazing drum duo featuring Milltown Studio’s John Patterson and Pete Salisbury, drummer with The Verve and The Charlatans.

Emmerdale actor Tony Audenshaw is compere, and he’ll also be singing with his band White Van Man and will give a hilarious multimedia tour of New Mills as his alter ego Tom Potson.

He said: “We last got together for The King And Us in 2011 on a magical night at the art theatre. This time around we have more acts, more multimedia, more laughs, more surprises and more nights, as the show sold out last time and we don’t want anyone to miss out.

“All the bands are playing their most popular songs like Town Called Malice, Twist and Shout, Moondance, Sex On Fire, The Wonder of You and Blame It On The Boogie, making it a massive party night to bookend New Mills Festival alongside the lantern procession and street party a fortnight later.”

The King and Us Too, Friday September 12 and Saturday September 13, 7.30pm, New Mills Art Theatre, Jodrell Street.

Tickets £10 from Priscilla’s Cards, The Hare and Hounds and Milltown Studios all in New Mills and Guild Hair and Beauty in Whaley Bridge.
