Eurovision 2021

#UK: This Is Salford NOT London Calling…

There will be no more “Good Evening Europe, this in London calling”, but you’ll now hear “Good Evening Europe, this is Salford calling”.

From this year the points awarded by the UK professional jury will be announced by the spokesperson from a North West of England location for the first time ever. This result will be beamed live to the Eurovision 2022 Grand Final hosts in Turin, Italy and to a huge global audience in excess of 180 million viewers, making Salford the new permanent production base and broadcast location for Eurovision in the UK.

Eurovision will be joining a well-established production and broadcast hub in Salford with BBC shows such as Children in Need and Comic Relief announced last year, as well as A Question of Sport, North West Tonight, Dragons’ Den, BBC Radio 5 Live, Football Focus, Match of the Day, BBC Radio Manchester, BBC Breakfast and Blue Peter.
