Eurovision Song Contest fans in Manchester are getting ready to sample all 43 songs at this year's contest at the sell-out Boom Bang A Bang event on 2nd May.

The event, organised by Eurovision fan Paul Marks-Joneswho said this year's response had been overwhelming and follows the "mega-success" of last year's first pre-Eurovision party held in the city.
Paul who runs events organising company Eventuality said: " I have been inundated with people wanting tickets for this year's event, so much so that I had sold out after just three weeks.In many respects it underlines just how many Eurovision fans there are out there who have been crying out for years to have a mainstay event around the contest in their city. On the night we are just going to have lots of fun and wave lots of flags, drink a few cocktails, and decide on our favourites at this year's Eurovision in Belgrade. Everything will be topped off by the ever popular Eurovision disco" .

The Manchester event takes place at Bacchanalia, Chapel Walks (off Cross Street). Attendees can enjoy special offers on food and 2 for 1 cocktails all night. More information is available from [email protected] or by telephoning Eventuality on 0870 300 9510.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
