What makes the difference between getting ‘douze points’ and ‘nul points’?  How do you get to the top of the left-hand side of the leaderboard?  Is there more to it than ‘Love, Love, Peace, Peace’? Join RTS London as we try to find out how to win the Eurovision Song Contest!

Sam Ryder gave the UK its best score since 1998, with the third-highest jury vote in Eurovision history of 283 points. His performance also gave the UK its highest viewing figures since 2011, a decade that otherwise saw some of its lowest vote rankings. The Grand Final was the second-most-watched programme in Britain (8.9 million viewers), behind only the Platinum Party at the Palace, at which Sam Ryder also performed. 

With pride restored to the nation, and Liverpool 2023 just a couple of months away, it begs the question, how do you win the Eurovision Song Contest? Our panel of Eurovision experts will dive into some of the contest’s greatest hits, look at why the UK hasn’t won since 1997, and explore what audiences have to look forward to this year. We’ll be at the legendary music venue, The 100 Club on Oxford Street, for our countdown party to the Eurovision Song Contest!

The evening will also include special musical performances from Abalicious, in tribute to 1974 winners ABBA, and SuRie, the UK Representative at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest.
