The St George’s Hall Eurovision Extravaganza in Liverpool 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, St George’s Hall Charitable Trust team up with organist Lee Ward to present the best of Eurovision as never heard before on the 7,737 piped Willis Organ of St George’s Hall. All proceeds will go to St George’s Hall Charitable Trust.
Thursday 11 May will showcase the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 second 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. The 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 and 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.
The programme will culminate on Saturday 13 May with Eurovision Song Contest 2023 Grand Final, with LCR Pride Foundation and ASG Audio Visual adding sparkle to the glittering grandeur of the Great Hall.
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 from each pie sold will be donated to DEC Humanitarian Appeal in Ukraine and Fans Supporting Foodbanks.
