There are a couple of shows on in Lytham in the next week that will leave you feeling all 
nostalgic.

First up on Sunday, Elvis is in the building (well, in the Lowther Pavilion building that is).

Chris Connor, described as one of the world’s leading Elvis performers, will be accompanied by the Barisons Orchestra for an evening of the King’s music.

The show will recreate two landmark performances from Elvis’s career – the 1968 comeback Special and the Aloha from Hawaii.

It will feature all the hits you’d expect to hear, from Suspicious Minds to Heartbreak Hotel, and Blues Suede Shoes to Jailhouse Rock.

Meanwhile on Wednesday (December 4), local favourite Tony Benedict leads a line up of three top vocalists in a show called Swing Into Christmas.

Backed by a swinging orchestra of musicians led by Greg Francis, the show will also feature the singing talents of Lynn Kennedy (from the Squadronaires Orchestra) and Joe Corrigan (from the Legends of Las Vegas show).

The show will feature tunes like Let it Snow, A Child is Born, The Most Wonderful Time of the Year and Winter Wonderland. In short, if it doesn’t get you in the mood for the festive period, nothing will.

Tickets (priced £18 for Elvis The Ultimate Performance, and £18.50 for Swing Into Christmas) are available from www.lowtherpavilion.co.uk or by calling the box office on 01253 794 221.
