Eurovision Song Contest took place in our very own county of Yorkshire. In 1982, the 27th edition of the competition took place in Harrogate following the country's victory at the 1981 contest.

Buck's Fizz won it for us, with their classic "Making Your Mind Up". Organised by the BBC and the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the venue for the contest was the Harrogate International Centre, now the Convention Centre.
