    The charity production where companies from West End shows sing popular Eurovision songs and the audience votes for the winners is set to return.

    A surprise guest from a past Eurovision Song Contest will be making an appearance.

    The show will be handing out three trophies, including The Champions, The Best Ident Movie and The Best Creative. Votes will be cast by text message and approved by a celebrity judge panel from each participating company.

    West End Eurovision will be raising money to benefit HIV and AIDS projects in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa. The proceeds will go to the Make a Difference Trust.
