Eurobeat ! Almost Eurovision Wed 1st Oct-2nd Oct 7.15pm
This week, the Blue Lounge at New Brighton Floral Pavilion, will welcome Eurobeat! It will be transformed into a packed capital city arena, as screaming fans wave flags for their Eurovision superstars.
This is a theatre experience like no other, fun, laughter and musical entertainment, and I aim to be there.
Here in sunny Sarajevo, for the greatest, gaudiest celebration of dodgy Europop.
This is a mock Eurovision competition containing almost everything you expect from a Eurovision final.
This riotously entertaining musical smorgasbord is a glorious and dazzling homage to the biggest annual song contest in the world.
On arrival, if you wish to experience this magical musical festival, you will be assigned a country. You’ll then be whisked across Europe to Sarajevo where your hosts, Boyka and Sergei guide you.
Ten countries compete for the vote. But like Eurovision, you can’t vote for your own country!
It’s all a musical banquet, a glamour-fest, a political minefield, with acts representing an eclectic mix of countries.
Written by Craig Christie and Andrew Patterson, it’s a production that’s gained multiple five star awards.
It is impossible not to love this.
It’s hilarious in song and dance routines but certainly one competition you won’t want to miss out on.
We have the Swedish pop group entry Avla, the Russian boy band KGBoiz, the Hungarian triplets, the Molnar Sisters with powerful folk music (sung in Hungarian of course) and the heartfelt longing of the song for Ireland presented by Ronan Corr.
The event is reinvented every night as the audience dictates who the winners are.
If you love the Eurovision Song Contest then go to see this show and if you don’t, go to see it anyway…it’s colourful, it’s funny and a fun night out. It’s got something for everyone, supported by brilliant technical wizardry.
Floral Pavilion, Marine Promenade, New Brighton.
