It’s making your mind up time again!

Martin smallIt’s time to be making your mind up at our Eurovision preview show 2016!

We are once again teaming up with Manchester’s ever-popular Boom-Bang-a-Bang party for the UK’s biggest Eurovision preview night featuring all the songs taking part in this year’s contest.

You’ll get to watch the videos from all 43 countries (don’t worry, the bar is open throughout!) heading to Stockholm in May, and then award your Douze Points to your favourite.

And this year we have a celebrity host! The fabulous Martin Fitch, Poland’s representative in 2010, will be joining us fresh from his starring role in teh Vauxhall Tavern’s 2015 Christmas Panto, “Charming Dick”.

Karl BBC Promo cropPlus, as a special guest, we’re proud to present Karl William Lund. Karl took part in this year’s UK national final, “Eurovision: You Decide” with his anthemic song “Miracle”, which beat hundreds of competitors to be the choice of the UK’s Eurovision fan club, OGAE. Even though he didn’t win the ticket to Stockholm, he became an instant hit with fans and we are delighted to bring him to the Eurofest stage.

And, as if that wasn’t enough fun for one evening, we’ll have four hours of Eurovision hits and remixes from the UK’s leading Eurovision DJs Dave Simmons, Don Grant and John Hagley. Schlagertastic!

For the preview show, doors open from 7pm, and the show kicks off at 8pm prompt. Get there early to get a front row seat! The preview show will be by ticket in advance at tiny.cc/europreview (£6 plus 60p booking fee), and only available on the door if there are any tickets left. We’ve sold out for the last two years so don’t say we didn’t warn you!

If you want to save all the songs until May then you’re welcome to join us from 11pm onwards and pay £8 on the door as usual.

Three days to go!

There’s just three days to go before our next Eurofest on Friday 10 April. This time of year is of course our preview show, in conjunction with Manchester’s Boom Bang-a-Bang preview party. We play you the videos for all 40 of this year’s Eurovision entries and you vote to choose the winner!

It’s an earlier start than normal with doors opening at 7pm for an 8pm start. We do advance tickets for the preview show, and last year we sold out so don’t say we didn’t warn you if the same happens this year! If you want to save all the songs until May then you’re welcome to join us from 11pm onwards and pay £8 on the door as usual.

Our preview show is a great chance to pick your favourites from this year before dancing the night away to at least four hours of fab Eurovision hits and remixes. There’s definitely more ballads and duets this year but there’s plenty of quality songs and we have no idea who the Eurofest crowd will choose as this year’s winner.

We won’t be forgetting the songs from this year’s national finals either so even if your favourite hasn’t made it to Vienna you might hear it at Eurofest. Sweden’s Melodifestivalen always gives us plenty to choose from, but we’re loving Thunderstruck by Erlend Bratland in Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix too. Do let us know if there’s any other national final songs you want to hear at the RVT on Friday!

On Friday 10 April we are once again teaming up with Manchester’s ever-popular Boom-Bang-A-Bang Party for the country’s biggest Eurovision 2015 preview vote!

We will be playing the videos of all 40 entries in this year’s Contest, and then it’s down to YOU to decide who should be the winner in Vienna! By the end of today we will know all the songs that are taking part in this year’s concert, and our preview show is a great way to help you decide who is going to be your favourite this year.

With a number of countries returning to the fold for the contest’s historic 60th edition, plus the debut of that well known European country of Australia, it’s anybody’s guess who will get the votes of UK fans.

If you want to save the songs until May and are just in the mood for a dance, we’ll have four hours of Eurovision and Europop from 11pm from the Eurofest DJs Don Grant, John Hagley and the UK’s leading Eurovision DJ Dave Simmons. As ever you can expect plenty of hits from this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, Eurovisions past and some classic Europop.

The preview show will be by ticket in advance (£6 plus 60p booking fee), and only available on the door if there are any tickets left. After 11pm you can pay on the door as normal (£8).
