It’s a year since Liverpool hosted what’s got to be the best Eurovision ever, so now’s the chance to celebrate all over again.

The atmosphere that took over the whole city in the run-up to the 2023 contest was absolutely incredible, and there’s going to be loads of great Eurovision events happening to coincide with this year’s on Saturday May 11. 

If you want to join in the party as title holders Sweden take over hosting duties, here are 10 things to do to celebrate Eurovision 2024 in Liverpool …

Malmö on the Mersey

It’s Malmo’s turn to bring the Eurovision magic this year, and if you’re a big fan but not planning to head to Sweden, here’s the next best thing. Malmö on the Mersey at the Exhibition Centre on Saturday May 11 is going to be a fabulous Grand Final Screening Party with one of the big stars of last year’s EuroVillage, Vengaboys, back to do it all again!
