Blackpool will be bursting at the seams with lookalikes and wannabes next weekend when the first Ultimate Tribute Artist Contest and Convention is staged at the Norbreck Castle Hotel from Friday to Sunday.

The event has been a long time dream of Blackpool entertainer Martin Fox and follows on from the Elvis tribute contest that he started in the resort several years ago.

“This is the first event of its type in the entertainment industry that will award any and all tribute artists and lookalikes and give them recognition for their efforts and crown a grand champion on Sunday evening.,” said Martin. “Many top tribute artists from around the world have shown their support for the event and the audience can expect to see tributes to John Lennon, Cliff Richard, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Madonna, Tom Jones, Elvis and Michael Jackson and many others.”

The event starts on Friday afternoon with performances Friday evening and Saturday afternoon and evening. Sunday afternoon is the semi final with a grand final on Sunday evening. Tickets and more information from Martin Fox on 0788 888 4251.
