For the very first time in recent memory, the U.K. Eurovision Preview Party offers a unique opportunity to see some of this yearâ€™s international Eurovision entrants performing in the United Kingdom prior to the competition. The U.K. Eurovision Preview Party is here to bring the joys of Eurovision back to the U.K. This will be the biggest Eurovision event in London since the city hosted the contest way back in 1977.
Showbiz presenter Paddy Oâ€™Connell will host The U.K. Eurovision Preview Party takes place at Scala in London on Friday 25th April from 21:00-04:00. Full details are available on the official event website at ukeurovision.com
The venue is Londonâ€™s 1,200 capacity Scala nightclub, fittingly located just a few steps away from Londonâ€™s newly opened Kings Cross St Pancras International rail hub that connects the U.K. to the European mainland.
The party is intended not only to give the thousands of U.K. Eurovision fans an opportunity to come together and celebrate the contest but also to provide U.K. media a unique opportunity to preview, meet and interview some of this yearâ€™s most hotly-tipped entrants.
Whilst most competing countries in the Eurovision Song Contest regularly embark on European promotional tours and welcome other entrants for promotion, the U.K. has in recent years been notably absent from these activities despite the Contestâ€™s growing popularity. This party aims to reverse this trend.
The VIP bar at the venue will be transformed into a special Green Room for the night. All media will have access to participating artists and will be able to enjoy the night and watch the show from the glass walled room above the crowd.
Already confirmed to perform at the event and meet interested media are:
Ani Lorak Ukraine 2008 Eurovision Song Contest representative
Euroband Iceland 2008 Eurovision Song Contest representative
Isis Gee Poland 2008 Eurovision Song Contest representative
Morena Malta 2008 Eurovision Song Contest representative
