The Eurovision Song Contest 2023 branding that was emblazoned across Liverpool during May has been transformed into the ultimate, must-have Host City merchandise.

More than 100 flags and banners from Liverpool 2023 have been turned into limited edition, must-have memorabilia to raise money for charity.

Proceeds from the sales will go to BBC Children In Need, funding projects supporting children and young people in Liverpool, in the United Kingdom. 

In Liverpool, BBC Children in Need is currently funding 13 projects to the value of more than £662,000, supporting children and young people who may be facing additional challenges in their lives whether that be children and young people living in poverty, providing emergency support to families in crisis, providing comfort to children feeling sad, lost and alone, helping children overcome social injustice and supporting children to feel safe and secure again.

With prices ranging from £20 to £100, fans will need to be quick to get their hands on the unique, limited number of products, and buyers should be aware that some of the items may be perfectly imperfect, thanks to their former life which saw them proudly flying in the Liverpool skies (meaning small signs of weathering may be visible on certain products).

Due to the limited amount stock, only one of each item can be purchased per transaction and resale of items is strictly prohibited. 

Head to bbcchildreninneedshop.co.uk from 10am on Friday 24 November for your chance to purchase a bag - though sadly, they are only available in the United Kingdom.
