Peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwich

My brother John is going to come along to Reginald D Hunter on my birthday. It will be exactly a year to the day since he took me to Taylor Swift, a friend of my nieces having dropped out.

I was droning on and on about my idea of pre-booking one interesting event each calendar month as we were driving from Cardiff to Skewen and explaining that I had already banked events up to August.

When you are taking the M4 on the way from Cardiff to Skewen, you pass junction 37 which is signposted for Pyle and Porthcawl.
The Festival
Every September thousands of Elvis fans descend on the Welsh seaside town of Porthcawl for a unique celebration of The King.
The feature events are the Official Shows taking place in the magnificent Grand Pavilion. These include The Elvies, the World's leading award Show for Elvis Tribute Artists.
In addition, The Hi Tide hosts over 100 shows over the weekend, many with free admission.
Finally, over twenty venues in and around the Town form the Fringe Festival, making Porthcawl the largest Elvis event in Europe.
Fate played the straight man, and September is now sorted as well.
