  • What is the Seating Plan / Arrangements?

    Viva Blackpool - 2022 Seating Plan Your seats are reserved and guaranteed for the show.

    Our seating plan is a mix of table sizes with tables of 2,4 and 6 and 12 people.

    We have different tiers of seating which are represented by different coloured dots (seats) on the plan. Our main room shows have ‘Premier’, ‘Standard’, ‘Bar’ and ‘Premier-Plus’.

    No need to get up to the bar, or wait in queues as there’s waiter service throughout the night serving drinks and snacks

    You can make specific seating requests if you want (i.e. if you don’t want to sit too near to the front!).

    You can either select your own seat online, or make the request to the box office operative when booking

  • Can I get tickets just for the show?

    Yes. Tickets for our resident and visiting shows are all for a reserved seat for the show only.

    There are various upgrade options available for most shows after you have selected your seats/show ticket type (Adult/Junior etc.) with options to add a dining package, and pre-order drinks options etc.

    Whilst we recommend dining with us to get the complete ‘Viva experience’, you can opt to come just for the show by selecting a ‘Show Only’ ticket which is a reserved seat for the show.

  • Does Viva cater for groups?

    All inclusive drinks deal

    We LOVE groups.

    Viva is a perfect destination for a party, or a group. With different table sizes (2s, 4s, 6s, 10s and 12s) and a flexible layout meaning we can add tables together, or seat in the same area of the room – we can cater for any private party requirement within our big show atmosphere.

    Group discounts are available for bookings of 10 people more more. Discounts will automatically apply at checkout.

    Group Discounts

    • -10 people or more - 10%
    • 20 people or more - 12.5%
    • 30 people or more - 15%

    When booking dining as a group, we’re likely to need your menu options before your visit (for groups of 10 or more people.)

    Please click here and send an enquiry to our Groups Specialist if you’d like help putting together a package for your booking

  • What is the Flexible Deposit / Reservation Ticket?

    Please note – not all shows have the option of our ‘Flexible Deposit’ ticket

    For just a £5 deposit – we will reserve the seat for you, with payment due at least 7 days before.

    We can now take the final payment automatically, or you can contact us in advance to make payment.

    Full terms can be found online – click here

  • What is the Viva venue like?

    Our Cabaret Theatre at Viva is a spacious, modern and comfortable venue which seats up to 650 people.

    The stage is large, but close to the front tables – and all guests will feel like their part of the show with tables of various sizes.

    You’re free to get up and dance around the table if you want to (as long as you don’t spoil the view for anyone else), and you can move around the room freely during the performance (relaxed space policy)

    If you’ve ordered pre-ordered dining – then you’ll dine in your show seats before the curtain goes up on the performance.

    Here are some images of the Viva Cabaret Theatre

  • What is Ticket Protection?

    For £2.50 per ticket, you can opt to protect your ticket against illness, travel issues and other disruption with our ‘Viva Ticket Protection’ offer.

    For this we will offer a flexible booking arrangement, whereas if you are unable to make the performance for any reason – we will refund your tickets (including any box office charges) to a credit on your customer account with us which you can use at the venue towards any purchase for a period of 18 months.

    If ticket protection is not taken, all tickets are unfortunately non-refundable and cannot be transferred.

    Ticket Protection Terms
    • Tickets can only be credited in advance of a performance, we cannot apply credits after a show has occurred.
    • No monetary refunds or transfer to another customer can be undertaken.
    • Credit will last for 18 months from the date of cancellation before it will automatically expire.

    View Menu and more details here

  • What are the timings for dining?

    Our dining service commences at 6pm and we request customers who have a pre-ordered dining package arrive no later than 6.30pm to ensure we can serve your food before the show commences.

    For those ordering from the Viva Kitchen menu – you can order from 6pm, until 10pm and enjoy your food anytime during the show.

  • Do we need to pre-order our food?

    For our Fix Prixe menu, currently we do require options to be pre-ordered. We are working towards service being a-la-carte this year however, and hope to be able to offer A-La-Carte to all visitors from April 2024.

    To submit your menu choices online – please click here

     

    For those ordering via our Viva Kitchen menu, you can either pre-order ahead of your visit or order on the night. The benefit of pre-ordering is that you are assured of receiving your items of choice, as occasionally items can run out due to high demand when no pre-orders are submitted.

    To pre-order anything from the Viva Kitchen menu, please click here and submit a request to our box office. Our new online pre-order system will be online in April 2024 allowing all customers to upgrade and add on additional extras via their mobile/web browser to ensure the complete ‘Viva Experience’

  • Drinks Table Service

    We have an extensive drinks menu including draught and bottle beers, wines, cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks.

    You can also ‘pre-order’ certain discounted drinks packages via the box office– so that your drinks are ready and brought to you as soon as you arrive at your table to avoid any wait times, or queues.

    Our draught beers are – Coors Light, Carling, Worthingtons, Carling Cider, Carling Dark Fruits and Madri. 4 pint pitchers and beer towers available (to reduce trips to the bar and to save money!)
