Paul Downie, Press Officer of The Elvis Touch told the Advertiser: "On March 2, 1960 after Elvis landed at Prestwick he was taken to the U.S.A.A.F. Base at Prestwick Airport, which was the N.C.O.’s mess at Adamton House Hotel for an interview and to meet the Americans on base. 

"In this very room Elvis phoned Priscilla in Germany. You can stand at the very bar Elvis made that phone call and see the Plaque presented to the hotel by Elvis Matters Fan Club.

"Another piece of the Elvis Story in Scotland."

The two day event on January 13 and 14 will feature live music and entertainment.
