• Rock'n'Roll Elvis

 

WE HAVE A DIFFERENT VIEW OF SEEING THE STARS

 

A three-course dining cruise with a live Elvis tribute performance by a top artiste, a chance to have a dance and great views of the Thames.

An award-winning Elvis tribute artist will give a stunning performance as Elvis, singing his way up and down the Thames.

Ben Thompson: Winning ‘Best 50s Elvis’ in the UK at just 17 years old. Ben has several contest wins under his belt and has starred in many touring shows worldwide, winning 2nd prize during Elvis Week in Memphis in the Ultimate contest in 2016 and in August this year (2018) he was the outright winner of the Ultimate Elvis Tribute contest in Memphis and is officially endorsed by Elvis Presley Enterprises. 

Matt King: Matt has won a number of trophies as Elvis. In 2004 he was the outright winner of the European Championships and in both 2015 and 2016 he took 1st place in Canada and at two of the biggest competitions in Europe (Elvis Now & King Of Britain).

Join us on one river cruise that’s truly Rock’n’Roll. ‘Elvis’ will perform, you’ll enjoy a glass of sparkling wine and a three-course dinner and then you’ll get a chance to get onto the dance floor as the boat heads towards Westminster. You’ll find cocktails, champagne and more at the fully-stocked bar.

Your ticket includes:

  • Welcome glass of sparkling wine on arrival 
  • 3-course dinner followed with tea or coffee
  • 2 sets featuring award winning Elvis tribute artist

    Elvis (Ben Thompson) was fantastic - he worked the room so we all got to take pictures and sing with him. The food was good quality (better than I had expected). Great views, a brilliant atmosphere, we all loved it and I would not hesitate to book another one. Highly recommend.

    ★★★

    Please see review above: I attended the Elvis dinner cruise with my mum on Saturday 1st September 2018, and was slightly disappointed. Whilst our Elvis had a really great voice, and looked fantastic, his first set was mainly made up of songs which were not well-known and were quite dreary. His second set was better but both sets were very short and the last half hour from 10.30pm to 11.00pm he did not sing at all! I did not enjoy the food much either. The starter was a salmon mousse which was not enjoyable as it was just a big dollop of mousse with a few prawns on the top. The main course was chicken and vegetables and I did not like the sauce on the chicken. The dessert was quite nice (some kind of chocolate pudding with a sauce that tasted of black cherries). I have to say that both our waitresses were fantastic, particularly one of them who tried her best to find a box or bag for me to take my chicken home for my dog. Although her boss did not allow her to do this, she was very kind and understanding and I thought that she had a very good way with the customers. The actual cruise itself was very nice although the boat docked for around 20-30 minutes in the middle of the trip which I was not happy about. We had a good evening but it could have been made a lot better, taking into account the above.

    ★★★★

    We enjoyed our cruise, Ben Thompson was great as Elvis and the food was good (except the fishy starter which was a bit warm and should be served chilled) There was a delay in boarding the boat as many other boats came and went in front of us so we were bored waiting to go but once on board the cruise was enjoyable. Things to note... the seating is quite uncomfortable so stood up when not eating and drinks are pricey. All in all a good alternative Elvis evening out, would recommend it.

    The Elvis impersonator was amazing, I’m not a huge fan of Elvis but he was fantastic. Food was delicious, didn’t like the starter as I don’t like fish but it looked lovely. Main course was cooked perfectly and nice and hot. The cruise started at Westminster pier and took us all the way along to the O2 area. Tower Bridge looked spectacular from the boat. Was traveling with my boyfriend and my dad and his partner and we all had a great time.
