Of course.

Photographer Lorna Cabble headed to Porthcawl for The Elvies, to capture the colour and wonder of its participants. There was a BBC documentary about the festival a few years ago that I’m sure you can still find if you look hard enough. I’d write more, but really, it’s a thing you need to see for yourself …
