With a live audience of over 200 million viewers, the Eurovision Song Contest is the biggest live international TV show in the world. The event is now an all-year-round digital experience and is hugely popular with young audiences.
At 65-years-old, Eurovision is also the UK’s biggest social media event annually. Within three years, Joe Mason went from working as a BBC researcher, producing vlogs about the competition as a hobby, to becoming @Eurovision’s lead social producer overseeing the official output on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for international audiences.
This event is free but please RSVP.
