Elvis Presley fans from across Ireland are set to attempt to break the world record for the largest gathering of impersonators later this month.

Supporters of the king of rock and roll will converge on Nutts Corner in Co Antrim on April 25 for an open microphone event with an array of retro jump suits, sunglasses and wigs.

They need almost 900 to break the Guinness World Record.

Organiser Julie Robinson said the aim was to raise money for charity, adding: "Who isn't a fan of Elvis? He was gorgeous, and we want the generation from then, some might be in their 70s and 80s, to come along."

Charities Cancer Research and the Fermanagh Talking Newspapers for the Blind Charities are set to benefit from the event.
