40 years ago this April, Brighton Dome played host to an historic moment of musical history as ABBA were crowned kings and queens of Eurovision. The winners had it all, fame, money and above all brilliant pop songs that live long in the memory. Now it’s time to celebrate this event with a great big party on the very spot it happened all those years ago…
Join writer, performer and life-long ABBA fanatic Christopher Green (Tina C, Ida Barr, creator of the BBC’s Like An Angel Passing Through My Room, a piece documenting his ABBA obsession featuring an exclusive interview with Frida), for a unique opportunity to remake ABBA’s historic Eurovision Song Contest win on the very spot it happened, 40 years to the day.
In this party performance lecture celebrating ABBA and their momentous triumph, you’ll discover more about the history of the group and their cultural significance, experience their finest moments on film, and witness some extraordinary cover versions of the songs that didn’t s coop the coveted prize that year.
