Ben Thompson Live as Elvis – The Ultimate Experience

Ben Thompson returns to Acapela as Elvis – after his spectacular Christmas concert in 2023.

It was a superb event – don’t take our word for – check out what Acapela audience members had to say:

“Last night, we witnessed a phenomenon at the @acapelastudio Pentyrch, Cardiff. There was show called Ben Thompson as Elvis Presley and ain’t no doubt, Elvis had been reincarnated! We’ve been to 36 shows so far at the Acapela and this was undoubtedly, the best so far”.  LEE (Twitter)

“Just seen your show at Acapela, absolutely amazing, you brought the house down, one of the best nights ever” Suzanne (Facebook)

When Ben was just 5 years old, he discovered Mr Elvis Presley. As he grew, so did his love of The King. By the age of 15 Ben had started appearing as his idol, learning his moves, his manner and perfecting the vocals. His talent has taken him all over the world, including Australia, Europe and America to name a few.

Ben has competed in several competitions, winning 5 titles and is the 2018 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Champion of Graceland. His other titles includes being the original winner of Europe’s Tribute To Elvis in 2013 and the first international winner of Tupelo’s Ultimate Elvis Contest. He was also presented with ‘the key to the city’ of Tupelo from Tupelo’s very own Mayor Mr Jason Shelton. This is just one of many accolades that have been given to Ben in recognition for his work.

​One of the many highlights of Ben’s career is to have performed on stage alongside Elvis’ original backing singers ‘The Sweet Inspirations’ on various occasions. Performing in many countries it’s always hard picking a favourite but one that always sticks in Ben’s mind is performing in Elvis Week in Memphis TN, celebrating the life of Elvis.

He was also privileged to have starred as Elvis in the 2017 Sequel film Bladerunner 2049, alongside Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling.

Ben now tours the world performing in theatres, arena’s and at music festivals as Elvis Presley and demonstrating his ability to be one of the only few ETA’s that can successfully portray all era’s of The Kings Career.

Becoming officially endorsed by Elvis Presley Enterprises was a great honour and proved that all the hard work, time and dedication Ben has and continues to give his career paid off. His priority is always keeping the memory of Elvis Presley alive in the most authentic and respectful way.

Book a table for pre-concert dining

Acapela Studio provides pre-concert dining between 6.00pm and 7.30pm from our wood burning pizza oven. To view the current menu visit here.

Please purchase your concert tickets first before booking a table. We will not accept any table bookings that do not have a corresponding ticket purchase.

Then return to the event page to book your table, by selecting the date of your event, number of diners and time you require table. The times shown are the only vacancies left.  Please complete your email and phone number as this is required to ensure your table is allocated. You will receive confirmation of your booking by email and text.

If on the date you have chosen no tables are available - no times will be shown and the booking system will revert you back to todays date - PLEASE ENSURE YOU BOOK THE CORRECT DATE!

PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE RELIES ON THE INCOME FROM DINING TO ENSURE WE CAN BOOK ALL THE GREAT ACTS PERFORMING.

Income from the provision of pizzas is very important to the venue and if you have booked a table it is a requirement that all people sat at tables order food - a salad alternative is available to pizzas. Please do ensure that all individuals will be ordering on your table - if  this is not the case please cancel your table so others who are looking to dine can do so. Our apologies to raise this but recently we have had many tables (some very large) where less than 50% of those sat at tables have ordered food. Financially this is a real problem to the sustainability of the venue. 

  • All seating at tables must purchase a pizza - so please do not book a table if everyone is not eating.
  • Please ensure that you arrive 10 minutes before the time slot allocated to order your pizzas prior to your booking time.
  • Tables not seated within 15 minutes of the allocated time may be lost and allocated to other audience members wishing to order pizzas.
  • If you wish to book a table for 6 or more please email info@acapela.co.uk

Please note that all of our pizzas are made fresh to order and cooked in an authentic wood-fired oven. It may take up to 45 minutes to be served during busy periods.

IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO BOOK A TABLE YOU CAN STILL ORDER PIZZAS ON THE NIGHT (USUALLY ON BUSY NIGHTS NO LATER THAN  7.15PM) AND WE WILL SERVE THEM TO YOU WHEREVER YOU ARE SAT IN THE VENUE - IN A PIZZA BOX.
