Our Next Event
An Evening of Eurovision Fun – with a Serious Edge
Monday 08 May 2017
“A feast for any Eurovision fan. As thorough a history of the contest as anyone could desire.” Graham Norton
“A cornucopia of everything I wanted to know about modern history and the Eu- rovision Song Contest.” Katrina Leskanich (Katrina and the Waves), Eurovision winner, 1997
Writer Chris West remembers seeing Sandie Shaw padding to victory in 1967, and has loved the Euro- vision Song Contest ever since (he even wrote a song for it in 1973, though it didn’t get selected). He is also a historian and a keen European – though one who feels there is plenty of room for improvement in Europe-level government (Eurovision has been going for longer, is infinitely more popular and brings people together much, much better).
Chris will be hosting a Eurovision evening based on his new book, Eurovision! A History of Modern Europe through the World’s Greatest Song Contest. There will be Eurovision classics from all eras, fun facts and a fiendish Eurovision Quiz, and some serious history and politics in between. What does it mean to be European? Where does ‘Europe’ end? Where is the European project headed? Who will win the Barbara Dex award in 2017? Come along and join the debate / pre-Eurovision party.
Tickets are £3, which are deductible from the cost of the paperback book (£8.99) if purchased on the evening. To book tickets, please ring the shop on 01462 684631 or call in to the shop.
