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.
