Share your Eurovision memories!
Posted on: 8 February 2023 by Development and Alumni Relations team in 2023
In May this year, Liverpool will proudly host the Eurovision Song Contest on behalf of Ukraine. Our University community together with the city of Liverpool will be ‘United by Music’. As well as Eurovision events taking place across the city, the University will host its own Eurovision Festival across campus.
We’ll be sharing the music, stories and memories of this unique cultural event, as well as celebrating our special relationship with our friends in Ukraine. And this is where you come in!
We’re looking for your Eurovision memories.
Did you and your friends host Eurovision parties in halls? Do you have any favourite Eurovision memories? Have you got Eurovision photos you’d be happy for us to share? Do you have a message you’d like to share with our friends in Ukraine? Your story could feature in the University’s official Eurovision coverage, on publicity materials or on our social channels!
And if you need a quick memory jog, take a look at some winner highlights since Eurovision came to be in 1956!
Lulu shared a joint victory for the UK alongside acts from France, Netherlands and Spain with her song Boom Bang-a-bang.
In 1974 Sweden's ABBA won the content in Brighton with Waterloo.
Bucks Fizz took the title home for the UK with Making your Mind Up.
Celine Dion became a household name with her winning hit for Switzerland Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi (Don't Leave Without Me).
Måneskin's hit Zitti e buoni brought the title home for Italy.
And last year, Ukraine's Kalush Orchestra were crowned winners with their song Stefania.
