It’s competition time. The nice people from Undutchable have given me two tickets to give away for their annual Eurovision party.
Not only will the party include a live viewing of the Eurovison Song Contest (already exciting in its own right) but there will also be live DJs, a Fairy Tale dress code, prizes and more. It’s all going to be held at Amsterdam’s St Olof Chapel on the 23rd of May.
To win all you have to do is answer this question:
“If you were writing your own song for the Dutch Eurovision Song Contest entry what would you call it and why?”
The most creative and funny answer will win the two tickets. Just leave your entry in the comments below (don’t forget to fill in your email). The competition is open until midnight on the 5th of May. The winner will be picked the following day and emailed the details about picking up their tickets.
If you’d like to guarantee yourself a place at the party you can already buy tickets from the Undutchable website. They are 20 euros each or free if you have worked through the agency before.
UPDATE: We have a winner! Congratulations to Ashley.
Do you like reading Invading Holland? Would you like to wear Invading Holland? Then I have good news for you. The Invading Holland T-Shirt collection is now on sale.
Being involved in the bloggies three years in a row has been brilliant. I get excited every year when I see Invading Holland has made it through to the final. It makes me very happy. I’m aware that admitting such a thing is very un-English of me but it is really hard to contain myself (even if it does risk perminate banishment from my home country).
It makes me feel very lucky to have such amazing and supportive readers who think I’m worthy enough of being a finalist in such a huge blog award. I’ve said it before but I mean it when I say this blog would not have become what it is today without you. I’ve been a winner of the Best European Blog Award once and now a runner up twice and each time it has been very exciting.
So thank you everyone who has supported Invading Holland over the years. Congratulations to the winner; Tallbloke’s Talkstop. And watch this space again next year when the 2015 Bloggies start.
