Baltic Market will host Liverpool’s biggest free Eurovision viewing party, showing both the Semi Finals and Grand Final from Tuesday 9th – Saturday 13th May.
Complete with live music throughout the entire week, as well as three limited edition Eurovision-themed cocktails, a special Ukrainian flag coloured slush and huge sharing platters from the food traders, Baltic Market will be completely free entry with space for 600 people for seated and standing areas.
Liverpool’s first food and drink market will showcase all of the Eurovision live shows on two giant 14ft x 8ft screens – one on each side of the venue so that all guests will get a great view of the festivities.
To get Baltic Market’s guests into the full Eurovision spirit, they’ll have a selection of drinks and dishes that are perfect for sharing and enjoying with friends and family.
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 Re-Act; a charity working in the Polish border town of Przemysl alongside their partners, Ukraine Education Platform, who purchase and then pack 1000s 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!
There’s also three limited edition cocktails including the Dancing Queen made up of Kopparberg Passion Fruit Vodka, passion fruit, vanilla and lime, the Mama Mia with Kopparberg Strawberry & Lime, elderflower, apple, cranberry, lemon and cucumber and Waterloo that’s made up of Kopparberg Cherry Rum, Triple Sec, Orgeat, lime and sugar syrup.
