As we get closer to finding out the host city of the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest, we look into the two remaining cities shortlisted to host next year’s competition. Rosie and Rory have reflected on what both cities can offer in terms of hosting next year’s contest in their discussion.
In addition to Rosie and Rory discussing the merits of both cities, they also visited each city in the run-up to them being revealed as the remaining shortlisted cities in the running to host Eurovision 2023.

- M&S Bank Arena / Liverpool Exhibition Centre
- Liverpool City Cathedral
- Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral
- Anfield Stadium

Speaking about his experience visiting the city, Rory had the following to say about Liverpool:
Liverpool is by no means a city of culture. Walking around the city, you can feel the music, the history and the vibrancy of the place, and coupled with the unique hospitality only Liverpool can give, a Eurovision held on the banks of the Mersey would be a show of colour, warmth and doing things differently.
Rosie visited Glasgow
On her visit to Glasgow Rosie walked around Glasgow where she visited the following:
- Lake District
- Glasgow Central Station
- Buchanan Street
- Frasers Department Store
- Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art

Speaking about her experience visiting the city, Rosie had the following to say about Glasgow:
Glasgow’s bid for hosting Eurovision is so much more than the just the Netflix movie. There’s music on every street corner, a thriving arts and culture scene, and a huge diversity of foods and cultures throughout the city. Glasgow is in a prime position to welcome Eurovision fans and delegations from around the world to Scotland and the UK next May.
