‘Brendan Galileo For Europe’ is an award-winning, one man show, written and performed by Fionn Foley. Set against the backdrop of the Eurovision Song Contest, it is a timely look at European politics. The show debuted at the Dublin Fringe Festival and following its success there, embarks on a UK and Ireland tour in June through to August. It will play for one night in Belfast’s Lyric Theatre on 15th June.
We are in the midst of Eurovision Selection Season, then there’s Eurovision itself in May, but Eurovision fans are usually stuck for Eurovision entertainment from June through to December! In 2016 we tried to fill that gap with the launch of the Eurovision NI Awards. In 2019 we want to expand our offering to a bigger venue that can accommodate a bigger audience and we want to put on a Eurovision Extravaganza. In order to do that we need your help and would love it if you could donate to our Kickstarter campaign.

Former Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle discussed her plans for her future career in an interview with BBC Radio Ulster Talkback host William Crawley earlier this afternoon. Nadine and Eurovision fans won’t be happy as the singer doesn’t seem to have any ambitions to appear in the Contest any time soon.
