About this event


There will be a sea of flags and the most outrageous costumes as the casts of some of Theatreland's biggest shows battle it out to be crowned the champions of West End Eurovision, to raise funds for the Make A Difference Trust.


Eight of the West End's top musicals will be competing against each other by singing original Eurovision Song Contest songs to win text votes from the audience and the approval of a panel of celebrity judges and judges from each competing show.


The casts will be giving their all to lift 3 coveted WEST END EUROVISION 2018 Trophies - The Champions, The Best Ident Movie and The Best Creative.


WEST END EUROVISION will also feature a special guest appearance by a past original Eurovision Song Contest entrant.


Previous performances have included: Scooch, Nicki French, Bardo, Javine Hylton, The Original Bucks Fizz, Sonia and Katrina Leskanich (Katrina and the Waves).


The feel-good, edge-of-your-seat-exciting and interactive charity event will once again raise funds for the Make A Difference Trust.


Since the first contest was staged in 2008, the event has raised thousands to support the MAD Trust.


The Trust works with its partners to support HIV and AIDS projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa building awareness and providing care support and education.
