If you can't get to Memphis in August, the European Elvis Festival is the place to be.
Join us on a visit to Bad Nauheim in Germany where Elvis lived while serving in the US Army from 1958 - 1960. We'll show you the iconic Elvis locations you've only ever seen in photographs, take you to Ray Barracks in nearby Friedberg and you'll see the homes Elvis lived in.
Julie and Trevor Yeardye from www.elvis.co.uk will be hosting this tour and promise to make this a unique event for all Elvis fans. Julie will also be giving a talk and Q&A on her books and sharing her extensive Elvis knowledge.
