DR WHO's arch-enemy comes face to face with the king of rock 'n' Roll next week in Great Yarmouth.

Terry Molloy, who played villain Davros in the BBC series, and Elvis tribute act Peter Sisman will be adding to the entertainment during late-night shopping on Wednesday.

There are two remaining Summer Wednesday shopping events, organ-ised by the Town Centre Partnership and Market Gates Shopping Centre.

Melting Pot Cabaret has scheduled a feast of live music acts for Market Place, with Market Gates playing host to author signings, fashion shows and craft workshops as well the return of Elvis.
