UK To Host Eurovision 2023 

 

 

 

 

 

 





The Eurovision Song Contest will take place in the UK next year after show organisers decided it could not be held in the winning country, Ukraine.
 

The UK has a number of places with suitable arenas, accommodation and international transport links, with London, Sheffield and Manchester already confirming that they will put in an official bid. 

Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle, Birmingham, Aberdeen, London, Brighton, Bristol, Belfast and Cardiff could throw their hats into the ring. 

"We are grateful to our BBC partners for showing solidarity with us," said Mykola Chernotytskyi, head of Ukraine's public broadcaster, UA:PBC. 

The bidding process to decide which city will host will begin this week. 

The BBC and the The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) will consider all official approaches and will publish the longlist later this summer. 

A BBC spokesperson said: "The Eurovision Song Contest is a co-production of the host broadcaster and participating members of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU)."There are a number of funding options to be explored that will contribute towards delivering a fantastic event and great value for licence fee payers."
