Back in 1974, Sweden won for the first time the Eurovision Song Contest with the entry Waterloo performed by ABBA.
The song became a huge international hit and was the starting point of their legendary international career.
The 1974 Eurovision Song Contest was held in UK at The Dome, in the seaside resort of Brighton.
Today (Thursday 15 June) between 6.45pm and 7pm a blue plaque will be unveiled at The Dome saying “Thank you for the music“, honouring ABBA’s win. The event will be broadcast live by BBC Sussex.
