👑 #ESC23: Royalty Unveil The Completed Stage!

This afternoon, the BBC, the British national broadcaster, unveiled the completed 2023 Eurovision Song Contest stage – with the help of Royalty.

His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort visited Liverpool Arena today (26 April 2023) to see the preparations for the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 and revealed the stunning set and stage for the event.

They were joined by Tim Davie, BBC Director-General for a tour and to meet staff, the creative team and apprentices getting the Arena ready to host the world’s largest live music event. They were then invited to light and animate the Arena with the set designer, and sound and lighting directors – revealing the Eurovision staging, for the very first time.

The royal party also chatted to a selection of the Eurovision hosts including Ukrainian singer, Julia Sanina, Emmy-Award winning actress Hannah Waddingham and BBC Radio 2 commentators Rylan and Scott Mills.  They also met the  UK’s entrant for the 2023 contest Mae Muller and music director of Eurovision 2023 Kojo Samuel.

The set was revealed to a soundtrack of the Eurovision theme composed by Michael Nekrasov, our Ukrainian composer.

Blue Peter presenters Abby Cook, Joel Mawhinney and Mwaksy Mudenda were on hand to present their Majesties with a Gold Blue Peter badge each – the programme’s highest award.

Martin Green CBE, Managing Director of Eurovision, had the following to say:

“We are thrilled His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort have unveiled this landmark moment for 2023 Eurovision. It has been a fantastic collaboration between all of our partners and the BBC to get to this point and now the stage is officially set to capture everyone’s imaginations and bring together audiences from across the world.”
