Eurobash 2016, the annual OGAE UK fan convention gets underway this weekend in Manchester.
The eleventh annual Bash will see fans gather for a weekend of voting, Eurovision celebrities, a quiz – and probably a bit of drinking and dancing!
Joe & Jake, who were this year’s UK representatives at the contest in Stockholm, will be performing for the fans and taking questions, as will Finnish diva Krista Siegrfrids who represented her country in 2013 with fan favourite “Ding Dong”.
Fans will also be treated to an appearance by the BBC’s Paddy O’Connell, who, in addition to having been one of the BBC’s team of Eurovision commentators, also hosts the annual UK Eurovision preview party in London.
The party takes place at Manchester’s Park Inn hotel on Cheetham Hill Road and, in addition to the special guests, features a quiz and the first ever “Eurogongs”, the UK fan club’s very own Eurovision Oscars. There’ll also be that staple of every Eurovision event – the Eurodisco!
