We’re so incredibly proud to see Liverpool as one of the final two cities in with a chance of hosting the Eurovision Song Contest in 2023.

After coming second in the overall contest this year, the UK will be taking over hosting duties from Ukraine, with either Liverpool or Glasgow set to host the world’s longest running televised music competition next year.

With the host city due to be announced in the coming days, the entire team at St Johns is so proud of Liverpool for making it this far and has its fingers crossed for the imminent announcement.

Hosting Eurovision would be brilliant for Liverpool, putting us on the world’s stage and welcoming tourists from all over to experience the magic of our city and its people.

As a UNESCO City of Music, famous across the world for the Mersey Beat and The Beatles, Liverpool is a city whose heart beats with the sound of music, and we can think of no better place to host the iconic Eurovision Song Contest.

Neil Ashcroft, Centre Director, said: “The whole team at St Johns is thrilled that Liverpool has got this far and we’re on the edge of our seats, waiting for the announcement to be made.

“Not only would this be brilliant for the tourism sector, but as a city with community spirit at its very heart, I know that Liverpool will do great justice to the people of Ukraine, commemorating and celebrating their success this year.”

For now, we wait to find out the results – but in the meantime, if you haven’t already, watch this brilliant video from Culture Liverpool as a reminder of why our city is the perfect place to host Eurovision.
