    Dates are similar to 2022 and to 2018, so quite early in may.
    Rehearsals will start 10-14 days ahead of the contest, so last week of April.
    You may need to start JBJ before you have all the songs, but that’s up to you.

    Gutted it’s not Glasgow, but my wife is from Liverpool and I know the city, so all in all not a bad outcome. I’m really hoping to get tickets for one of the shows and, who knows, I might even get to meet some of the ESC Insight team in person.
