How to get tickets for Eurovision 2023 as UK to host

The UK will host Eurovision in 2023, as 2022 winners Ukraine are unable to host the song contest following Russia’s invasion.

Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra won the song contest in May, while the UK’s Sam Ryder was the runner-up with his hit song Space Man.

Traditionally, Ukraine would be the next host, but due to the conflict in the country, the UK will step up to host instead.

Mykola Chernotytskyi, head of the managing board of the broadcaster, said in a statement: “The 2023 Eurovision Song Contest will not be in Ukraine but in support of Ukraine. We are grateful to our BBC partners for showing solidarity with us.

“I am confident that together we will be able to add Ukrainian spirit to this event and once again unite the whole of Europe around our common values of peace, support, celebrating diversity and talent.”

UK fans of Eurovision will be wondering how they can get theirhands on tickets, as its the first time they can attend the show without having to travel internationally since 1998.
