Last week Liverpool was announced as the Host City for the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest. Despite the recent announcement, there is already speculation Pier Head could be the host of the 2023 Eurovillage.
Pier Head for Eurovillage?
In an interview with The Guide Liverpool, it has been confirmed plans for the Eurovillage and Euroclub are already in place. The Director of the M&S Arena Faye Dyer has stated that they are looking at Pier Head as the Eurovillage venue.
Pier Head forms part of the backdrop to Liverpool’s skyline along with the Royal Liver Building and the Cunard Building. Pier Head is located on the riverfront and is approximately eleven minute’s walk from the M&S Bank Arena.
“The whole city will be utilised and activated. We got things like the Eurovillage that going to be down at Pier Head, there be a Euroclub elsewhere in the city”Faye Dyer on the 2023 Eurovillage and Euroclub
At the time of writing Liverpool Council, the EBU and the BBC are yet to confirm the Eurovillage and Euroclub venues for Eurovision 2023.
Eurovision Song Contest 2023
After Ukraine won the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest in Turin, it was revealed that Ukraine will not host the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest. The hosting duties were then passed to the runners-up; the United Kingdom. Liverpool will host the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest on the 9th, 11th, and 13th of May 2023. The contest will take place at the M&S Arena.
