Dumfries Set To Celebrate Everything Eurovision

Get set for a weekend to remember as Eurovision fever comes to Loreburn Hall, Dumfries this Saturday 13th May 2023.

Dig out your sequins and get ready for an overload of dry ice and tactical voting as the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 is broadcast live from the Liverpool Arena on behalf of Ukraine to a global audience of more than 160 million.

Everyone is buzzing for Eurovision this year, but it’s only the lucky few that’ll get to see the campy extravaganza in the flesh, so the rest of us need somewhere to let out our Eurovision excitement.

Hosted by the Big Burns Supper team and in partnership with LGBT PLUS, Dumfries, the world’s largest live music event is being shown on southern Scotland’s largest screen at Loreburn Hall. The evening is set to be filled with outrageous fun and games including Eurovision bingo in which hopefully no one will score “nil points”.

It wouldn’t be Eurovision without some questionable outfits, and so guests are encouraged to wear anything and everything Eurovision … don’t forget your flags too.

Tickets for the event cost £20 and include four drinks at the bar as well as entry to the Eurovision bingo, tickets are available at https://bigburnssupper.com/event/eurovision-party/

The weekend also plays host to the Jazz Club on Friday 12th May in Le Haggis Room from 7.30pm where The Dave Batchelor Quartet perform a lively night of jazz and swing.

And on Sunday 14th May Nonsense Room Productions bring an interactive musical for all the family.

This unique show which is based on the book “You Choose” by Nick Sharratt and Pippa Goodhart gives youngsters the chance to choose what happens in the performance from the characters to the costumes and much more. Tickets for both are available via the Big Burns Supper website.

Big Burns Supper CEO Graham Main is looking forward to a big weekend at Loreburn Hall.

“Eurovision fever will be building all week in the UK and we’re thrilled to be hosting the best party in south Scotland. If people want to come along dressed up to support any of the finalists that’s great, but we will have all kinds of games lined up to ensure it’s a Eurovision night to remember – whoever wins.
“We are the home of camp in southern Scotland and can’t wait to throw open our doors and celebrate in a party atmosphere.”
