Elvis would have been 72 on January 8 this year, and the music of the true king of rock 'n' roll still lives on strongly today.
His reign began in 1953, when as a young worker from the Parker Machinists Shop, he wondered into the Memphis Recording Service on his lunch hour to record a couple of tracks.
Elvis signed for Sun Records before RCA bought his Sun contract for $40,000, and he had his first number 1 hit - Heartbreak Hotel.
Elvis Presley is the best-selling solo artist in US history, and spent more weeks at the top of the charts than any other act.
The King had the greatest number of consecutive number 1 hits, and was second only to The Beatles in his total of number 1 hits.
Shake, Rattle and Roll will start at 8pm tonight and is an over 18s event.
Tickets cost £12 on the door or £10 in advance by calling 01462 672003.
