Each participating show has been challenged to produce a fully costumed performance of a past Eurovision Song Contest entry. They will be judged on the night by the audience and a celebrity panel; past household names have included Graham Norton, Arlene Phillips and Sheridan Smith. The gala will also feature a special guest appearance by a past original Eurovision entrant. Previous performances have included Scooch, Bardo and The Original Bucks Fizz.

Last year the winners were the cast of Sweeney Todd who had UK Eurovision and West End star Michael Ball on hand to literally “cut” the competition to shreds!

All proceeds from ticket sales will go to “The Make A Difference Trust”. The charity unites the UK’s entertainment industry, using its stars, audience, influence and appeal to raise money, awareness and hope for people living with HIV, Aids and other chronic illnesses.

This is a wonderful night of Eurovision and Fun all in aid of a good charity.
