Organisers of the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest, along with the BBC, the British national broadcaster, are working with cities around the United Kingdom, in creating Fan Zones for the upcoming Contest in Liverpool. Fan Zones would take place in outdoor, public spaces that could hold a large number of people.
Martin Green, the BBC’s Eurovision Managing Director, had the following to say to the Liverpool Echo:
“What we’re currently doing is talking to a number of towns and cities across the UK about whether they want to join in and show it. The proximity of the other major event this year, the King’s Coronation, is helpful here because some cities may want to do things that cover the two at once.”
In Liverpool, the official Eurovision Village will be held at Pier Head. Manchester Council’s City Centre spokesperson, Councillor Pat Karney, had the following to say to the Manchester Evening News:
“Manchester has a huge Eurovision fanbase. We are currently talking to the BBC about how we can celebrate the great event with our neighbours in Liverpool. We will be having some celebration.”
