Completed petition Prepare a bid for Wales to compete in the Eurovision Song Contest
Wales is known around the world as “The Land of Song”, and we have a rich culture of music and performance which is recognised and celebrated internationally. Wales should have the opportunity to be represented at Eurovision as a nation in its own right. Therefore, we call on the Welsh Government to work with S4C and other relevant bodies to prepare a bid for Wales to compete in the Eurovision Song Contest.
The requirement to compete at Eurovision is to be an active member of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). S4C is already an active member of the EBU. Wales has already taken part in Jeux Sans Frontières, Eurovision Choir and the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
