Are you ready to party? Brighton is gearing up to host our own local party for the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest and is preparing to welcome fans from all over the world for an unforgettable week of music, fun, and excitement.
Here are just a few of the events you can expect to find in Brighton during Eurovision week:
Throughout the week, Brighton's bars and clubs will be hosting pre-parties to get fans in the mood for the big night. These events will feature Eurovision karaoke, quiz competitions, and live music performances, so you can sing and dance along to your favourite Eurovision hits. Ironwork Studios will be hosting an event with a twist between the 11 - 12th May, where you (the audience) are able to vote on your favourite past Eurovision songs which will be performed live. Alternatively, TLC Cafe will be screening the 2nd Eurovision semi-final and an all encompassing quiz on the 11th.
Eurovision Live Screening
The main event and highlight of the week will be the live screening of the Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday, May 13th, at Jubilee Square. There will be musicians and bands performing on stage throughout the day before the screening. If you have kids and dogs in tow, One Garden will also be hosting an event with their residential DJ ensuring that the party doesn’t end. Speaking of a party, Concorde 2 will also be holding a ticketed event from 6PM until the early hours.
If you prefer a sit-down and a more relaxing environment, Duke of York is the place for you to watch everything unfold.
Eurovision Fan Zones
If you want to soak up the Eurovision atmosphere but don't have a ticket to the main event, head to one of the fan zones around the city. The biggest being at the Coral Brighton & Hove Stadium. As well as the official events, expect to see plenty of impromptu street parties and celebrations throughout the city.
In short, there will be something for everyone in Brighton during Eurovision week. So book your tickets, pack your sequins and get ready to join the biggest party of the year!
