Fans feeling the anti-climax after this year's Eurovision Song Contest is over need not despair, as a London theatre is planning a show featuring favourites from the contest and a tribute to 1974 winners ABBA.

The BBC Concert Orchestra will be providing the score at the Hackney Empire as a host of West End stars perform the songs fans have come to love. As well as UK hits such as Save your kisses for me, One step out of time, Ooh aah… Just a little bit and Boom bang-a-bang, the audience will be treated to a round-up of ABBA's finest collection, including Knowing me, knowing you, Fernando and Super trouper.

The show takes place on 25th May, and tickets are priced at £20, £16 and £12. You can find more information about the show at both the Hackney Empire website and the BBC Concert Orchestra website.
