Eurovision Fever Hits Iconic Landmarks

TWO iconic Grade I listed landmarks are getting into the Eurovision spirit which has swept the host city of Liverpool.

Both St George’s Hall and Liverpool Town Hall are today officially launching a series of Eurovision events, with a variety of experiences which will offer something different to residents and visitors.

St George’s Hall Eurovision Extravaganza

The St George’s Hall Eurovision Extravaganza will take place from Wednesday 10 – Saturday 13 May and will feature five events.

The programme will kick off on Wednesday 10 May, with a series of guided tours, which will chronicle Liverpool’s journey from being crowned ‘World Capital of Pop’ by the Guinness Book of Records to now being host city of Eurovision 2023.

Also on the Wednesday will be a Eurovision-themed organ recital, performed by organist Lee Ward and featuring the best of Eurovision as never heard before; on the 7,737 piped Willis Organ of the Great Hall.

Thursday 11 May will showcase the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 2nd Semi Final, which will be the first of two live screenings supported by entertainment acts and presented in partnership with LCR Pride Foundation and ASG Audio Visual. This incredibly exciting evening will be hosted by drag queen and cabaret artist, Brenda LeBeau. The Scouse songstress and one-time Drag Idol UK finalist will be joined by after show DJs, Sonic Yootha – a self-proclaimed “dislocated disco for homos, fauxmos, gender-blenders & part-time Brendas”.

The penultimate event will take place on Friday 12 May with an ABBA tribute night, providing live music entertainment in honour of the hugely popular 1974 Eurovision Song Contest winners and all-round music legends.

The programme will culminate on Saturday 13 May with a live screening of the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 Grand Final, with LCR Pride Foundation and ASG Audio Visual adding sparkle to the glittering grandeur of the Great Hall. Acts for this show-stopping evening are currently being kept under wraps, with an announcement expected to be made via the LCR Pride Foundation team in the coming week.

In a touching show of solidarity with the people of Ukraine, as well as some of Liverpool’s own most vulnerable people, the Homebaked Bakery team who operate St George’s Hall café will be selling their Peace Pie at some of the above mentioned events. £1 of each pie sold will be divided between the DEC Humanitarian Appeal in Ukraine and Fans Supporting Foodbanks.
