This year, we have had a slightly different start to the Eurovision Song Contest. We haven’t had access to the first week of rehearsals. We have hopefully adapted to this to bring you the coverage you have all grown to expect.
Day 1 for us was last Saturday, when we arrived here in Liverpool. Across days 1 & 2 we spent our time exploring the city and the surrounding areas. We were really impressed from the out set on how Liverpool have embraced the Contest, yet the majority of the delegations had yet to arrive, let alone the fans.
Day 3 saw our first interview take place – with Mimicat of Portugal, while days 5 & 6 saw another eleven interviews carried out. All twelve can be viewed here on the website or via our YOUTUBE channel.
Day 4 was the last down day as such before everything started to happen. We decided to head slightly south and visit the city of Chester. If you’re staying in Liverpool or surrounding area, it’ll take you between 30 – 45mins on MerseyRail to reach Chester. Our highlights of Chester can also be seen on our YOUTUBE channel.
Day 7, today, we took our final day away from all the Eurovision shenanigans. Our day trip took us to North Wales was made by car, although it could’ve been made by train. We visited Caernarfon, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch & Llandudno. So that is our first week in a mini round-up! Daily diaries will resume normal service as of tomorrow.
