Baltic Market in Liverpool is installing two giant screens to screen the semi-finals and final of Eurovision in free “viewing parties”.

Complete with live music, Baltic Market will be showing all the Eurovision action from Tuesday, May 9, to the grand final, which is taking place at the M&S Bank Arena on Saturday, May 13.

It will offer three limited edition Eurovision-themed cocktails, a special Ukrainian flag coloured slush and sharing platters from the food traders, Baltic Market will be free entry with space for 600 people for seated and standing areas.

It will showcase all of the Eurovision live shows on two giant 14ft x 8ft screens – one on each side of the venue.

The market’s Eurovision slush is a bright blue and yellow drink to represent the Ukrainian flag, with the team donating £1 from each drink to charity Re-Act.

It is working in the Polish border town of Przemysl alongside its partners, Ukraine Education Platform, who purchase and then pack thousands of boxes a week with vital food supplies.

The packages are loaded onto trucks and taken straight to the East of Ukraine, where the need is greatest. Each box costs just £30 and can feed a family of four for a week.

Baltic Market will show the Eurovision festivities on Tuesday and Thursday from 8pm to 10pm and Friday and Saturday from 8pm to 12am with live music on each day. No booking is necessary but it is an 18-plus event.

On Tuesday, Lovely Goose will perform from 6pm to 8pm, on Thursday it’s Meg and Ben from 6pm to 8pm.
