Eurovision fans have been invited to a huge party taking place at the greyhound stadium.

The event is being held at the Coral Brighton and Hove Stadium, with guests, games and a resident DJ playing Eurovision classics from yesteryear.

Trivia, scorecards, cash prizes and more surprises are also promised for the extravaganza to mark the first time Britain has hosted the competition since 1998.

Alan Skinner from React Entertainment, organisers of the event, said: “I know it is going to sell out and is set to be a fantastic Eurovision celebration.

“It is a historic event where I want to mark the occasion in a fun-filled and memorable way.

“We will be pulling out all the stops to make sure the guests will never forget where they were the night Liverpool hosted Eurovision.”

Doors for the event open at 6.30pm on Satuday, May 13, where a guest compere will get the party started ahead of the start of the contest at 8pm.

Brighton previously hosted the annual song contest in 1974 at the Brighton Dome, where ABBA was shot to international stardom after winning the competition with their song Waterloo.

Tickets are available from £25 via Ticketsource.
