Rhyl rocket man kicks off summer of fun

Elton Wrong

A hit during the lockdown with his front door shows, Elton John tribute act Elton Wrong (pictured) will be bringing his piano and some of the pop star’s classic hits to Rhyl as part of a day of fun to kick off the summer holidays.

“The town council’s next free community event, the Summer Starter, won’t just be for tiny dancers but dancers of all ages,” said Rhyl mayor Cllr Diane King.

“Once again, we have lined up a treat of a day that will keep people on the move from beginning to end. We have lots of free fun planned with seaside games, face painting, and a seaside theatre show to be shown in the Sussex Street Christian Centre. Now is the time to be shouting about what’s coming up so, people of Rhyl, to borrow a line from Elton himself, you can tell everybody this is your event.”
During the pandemic, Elton Wrong made a name for himself, belting out classics like
‘I’m Still Standing’ ‘Rocket man’ and ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ on people’s driveways. His motorised piano adds a sense of theatre to his performances which have raised smiles right across the UK.
Alongside Elton will be another showstopper – Desert Island Discs – featuring a castaway and a 20-foot-high surprise! The show will be held in the Sussex Street Christian Centre on Sussex Street twice on the day with entry free on a first come, first served basis.
The Summer Starter will be held on Saturday July 30 on Rhyl High Street 11am-4pm. The schedule is:
