It’s one of the most iconic venues anywhere in the world, known to millions of racing fans – now Aintree Racecourse is getting ready to be part of Liverpool’s massive Eurovision party.
It will be hosting a family-friendly evening packed with Eurovision fun including a live screening for the grand final on Saturday May 13.
So, if you’re still making plans and want to be somewhere that’s really special to watch the contest, here are 5 reasons why you should book to watch Eurovision at Aintree Racecourse …
This is one for all the family
Lots of the events and screenings happening on Eurovision finals night are being held in bars which isn’t ideal if you don’t want the kids to miss out. Aintree’s Eurovision screening has been put on with all ages in mind, so there’ll be family and no-alcohol zones available. Under 12s go free too, you just need to book them a ticket when you book yours. It’s £10 for adults and children over 12.
It’s in the Red Rum Garden so it’ll be a fantastic atmosphere
Everyone who’s ever been to the Grand National – or even just seen it on TV – knows that the Red Rum Garden has been the scene of plenty of incredible parties over the years because it’s where everyone heads once the last race is over to keep the celebrations going. For Eurovision, there’ll be entertainment from 7pm plus a big screen up in there so you’ll get a great view of all the action once the show starts at 8pm.
There’s chance to play judge and pick your winner
One of the best bits of Eurovision is the judging, when the douze points and the nul points get handed out to the best and some absolute shockers. Get to Aintree and you can be the one dishing out the marks because everyone gets a scorecard to play along.
Even the food’s got a Eurovision flavour
Doors open at 6pm and it goes on until midnight so you’ll want something tasty to keep you going through all the acts. That’s all sorted because there’ll be a variety of European food stalls and bars open on the night to choose from.
It’s really easy to get to on the train
If you’re in a group of mates or family and you all fancy having a drink, or just don’t want to drive, Aintree Racecourse is so close to the Merseyrail station, it’s a couple of minutes walk away, and you’re on the Northern Line that connects to north Liverpool, town and south Liverpool.
