What we're about

Are you looking to meet new friends, have your diary full of fun things to do, feeling lonely and just want some company? This group is for you - meals out, cinema, theatre, days out, weekends away, afternoon tea, coffee get togethers - it will be friendly and welcoming :))

Up and coming events for 2019:

- Come Dine With Me
-Summer BBQs
- 17-19 July spa break
- Enchanted tea rooms afternoon tea 30 March
- Chilfest - 6 July

This group is friendly and I personally greet everyone at all of my meet ups and introduce everyone to each other to make everyone feel relaxed and welcome :))

A few behaviours that are crucial for this group to be friendly, welcoming and logistically workable:

- please keep your rsvp up to date especially where eating is involved - we may be waiting for you to arrive

- please remember we are all different and that’s what makes us unique and great - let’s respect one another’s opinions, hopes and dreams even if they differ from ours

- let’s be positive - people want to come to relax, laugh and enjoy their time in the group

- let’s make every new person feel welcomed

Things happen and social events fall by the wayside. However in order to be respectful to others if you ‘no show’ 3 times without letting me know you’ll be removed from the group. Definition of ‘no show’ being you don’t let me know you can’t make it.

To keep the group up to date with active members, if you haven’t come along to a meet up within 6 months of joining you’ll be removed from the group to make way for new members who would like to participate.

Ben, a multi talented musician, singer and songwriter had Elvis's DNA in his blood from an early age. His father was an avid Elvis fan and Ben grew up on a diet of Elvis songs. Having honed his musical talent Ben started his journey as an Elvis Tribute Artist in 2005 when he formed the "Taking care of Elvis" band. Audiences quickly realized that this was someone with a special talent. He looked like Elvis, sang like Elvis and had an on stage charisma that had audiences believing at times they were watching the King himself. This talent saw Ben rapidly rise through the ranks of Elvis Tribute Artists. In August 2012, Ben made history when he won the Elvis Presley Enterprises Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist contest which took place in Memphis, crowning Ben as the “Worldwide Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist”, the first artist from outside the USA to ever win this prestigious title. Fans from all over the world declare Ben Portsmouth as the closest they have ever seen to Elvis Presley. Social media forums are overwhelmed with fans demanding his return to their country. On this night, you will see the live performance that left David Letterman at a loss for words exclaiming, “Oh my God, Oh my God!” when Ben headlined his show in February of 2013. Internationally renowned as one, if not The Best Elvis Tribute in the world today, Ben Portsmouth will bring his unique style and charisma and will show audiences why he is regarded as the best in the business.
