Belvoir Castle is hosting a charity concert to commemorate the musical career of Elvis Presley in the 40th year following his death.
Entitled “King at the Castle” the concert next month will feature a variety of musicians who will be performing a wide range of Elvis music.
The concert on Saturday, July 8 will raise money for the Rainbow Trust, a charity which supports families with children who require support when faced with terminal or life threatening illnesses.
The Duchess of Rutland is a patron of the charity and is looking forward to hosting the event at Belvoir Castle.
She said: “I’m delighted to be hosting this prestigious music event which I hope will become an annual fixture in our calendar. We’re always looking for ways to encourage visitors to the estate and the concert represents a great opportunity to raise vital funds for a charity that does vital work in the community.”
Housed in the events marquee on the Belvoir Estate the event will be headlined by Nick Pacey, a singer who is renowned for performing Elvis’ music and was once described as the most authentic sounding Elvis performer he’d ever heard by none other than Wayne Mann who is Elvis’ cousin. Backed by his Roustabout band Nick will be supported by the ever popular rockabilly band The Hicksville Bombers and classical singer Faryl Smith who rose to fame as a 12-year-old on Britain’s Got Talent.
Local choir the Belvoir Wassailers directed by Caroline Jones and accompanied by Jenny Walker are also performing their own tribute to the King.
Tickets are priced at £60 and in addition to an evening of fine music include a reception drink, gourmet buffet and exclusive access to Belvoir Castle.
