Elvis Monkies around at Twycross Zoo

Animal fans were recently treated to a dining guest they least expected – Guests at Twycross zoo were ‘All Shook Up’, when they were treated to an impromptu performance by ‘Chinese Elvis’ who was warming up for his forthcoming appearance at their forthcoming December Christmas Special Tribute Night.

Guests who were dining at the Twycross Zoo restaurant were treated to three performances from Chinese Elvis – who was recently quoted as having a ‘Real Talent’ by Judge Piers Morgan during his appearance on ITV’s Britain’s Hot Talent. The weekends guests certainly did not feel ‘Lonesome’ during the performances. Chinese Elvis sang to families at their tables and there was lots of dancing by children who may have never even heard of Elvis before, and even some gyrating by mums and dads to the sounds of the King from the 60’s and 70s.

‘Chinese Elvis’ commented “I perform right across the World, and this certainly was a surreal warm up – the diners loved it, and it just goes to show how timeless Elvis is appealing across the generations, with kids in push chairs moving to the hits, all the way through to Grandmas in wheel chairs who said they were having a good time and tapping to the hits- The December event is set to be a real Zoo-house rock!”

Twycross operations director (pictured) said “this is the first such event we are hosting this Christmas, and it promises to be a real fun celebration, and the perfect Christmas party for local businesses. The crowd loved Chinese Elvis this weekend, and with the accompanying Tom Jones Look alike on the actual night, I can pretty much guarantee guests will be ‘All shook up’

The event is organised in conjunction with Staffordshire based, who specialise in creating exclusive events “We have worked with Chinese Elvis on a number of occasions with our clients” Comments MN Geoff Bartlett “He offers a great value night, fun for everyone, and to be holding this event at Twycross Zoo just as to the surreal experience for the diners at Christmas – it’s the perfect office party event”. The event is held on December 15th, and for more information and ticket sales visit
