KEiiNO klaxon!

Keiino in london smile small

Our next Eurofest will be our 30th edition – and we’ve decided to party in style!

We are proud and excited to be bringing to the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, London the “people’s choice” of Eurovision 2019, the fabulous KEiiNO, on Friday 8th November.

The Norwegian trio have been the ultimate fan favourite, winning this year’s televote, with the brilliant “Spirit in the Sky” and they will be bringing their spectacular show to the RVT stage.

But that’s not all….!

Eurofest is delighted to be hosting the return of the Second Cherry contest – a celebration of songs that competed in contests across Europe for the chance to represent their countries at Eurovision – but failed. Second Cherry is their second chance; a second bite of the cherry.

After a few years hiatus, the Second Cherry team are back for 2019 accompanied by a podcast and they will be hosting the live ‘final’ at the start of Eurofest (7:45-10pm).

The audience on the night will vote as juries and form 50% of the vote. The other 50% will be from an online vote of the Second Cherry podcast listeners. Turn up, enjoy the show, vote, and then party!

Plus of course all the best Eurovision, Europop and Schlager hits and remixes from our team of DJs Don Grant, John Hagley and Dave Simmons.

Tickets are on sale now. There are two categories of ticket:

  • one allows entry ALL EVENING FROM 7PM, giving you Second Cherry, Eurofest and KEiiNO;
  • one allows entry AFTER 10pm, to ensure you get Eurofest and of course KEiiNO

Both priced at £10, the two categories are purely to manage numbers at Second Cherry.

Keep up to date with news about this event on our Facebook event page and Twitter.

This is our life, my friend!

Anna 2Gosh, it’s been a while! It seems ages since our preview night back in March.
But we don’t believe in a Eurovision off-season, which is why we’re holding another summer spectacular of Eurovision, Europop and Schlager on Friday 9th August as ever at the fabulous Royal Vauxhall Tavern in London.

For our live act we’re giddy with excitement to be joined by one of the big come-back stars of this year, the fantastic Anna Bergendahl!

Almost a decade since she represented Sweden at Eurovision with “This Is My Life“, she’s back in 2019 looking and sounding better than ever, taking Melfest by storm with the brilliant “Ashes to Ashes“.

And of course we’ve got a night of Eurotastic hits and remixes courtesy of the UK’s leading team of Eurovision DJs – Don Grant, John Hagley and Dave Simmons.

Tickets are £6.50 (+fee) in advance, or £8 on the door.

Doors open 9.00pm, Anna is on stage at Midnight, and we will be partying through to 3.00am.
