We booked the dinner and show, the food was ok and hot, we prebooked our drinks also, the show was amazing and very professional, we really did laugh, they singers and dancers worked really hard, the venue is nice, we booked it by phone and had no problems with booking in. Would defiantly recommend the show. november67 - TripAdvisor Reviewer - October 2018
Have only good things to say about my visit. Visited with 7 others for my mother in laws birthday. We went to see the Leye D Johns cabaret show which we found very entertaining and funny. We had a pre show meal which was very nice and none of us were disappointed. I must also make a note of the service which was well organised and very quick. We wanted for nothing all night and I was surprised that my bill at the end of the night was much lower than I expected. All round we had a great night with great entertainment and a great hangover the next morning. 584barriej - TripAdvisor Reviewer - October 2018
Unexpected delight. Real winner must see
We had a weekend away booked so booked the comedy show in viva Blackpool, we were very disappointed when 4 days before our visit we got a email stating that the acts had cancelled, we were offered two tickets for the caberet night instead. We both thought it was not for us but switched to the caberet show and wow we were not disappointed. Its a great show lay d John oh my you sir topped the evening. We highly enjoyed the whole event from start to end, highly recommended if your going to Blackpool. What a great night out. IanC - TripAdvisor Reviewer - Feb 2019
Came upto Blackpool to stay with some friends and they had booked a table at viva for dinner and to see the show. The food was better than i expected. The show was the variety show on Saturaday. Very entertaining. davetO185NS - TripAdvisor Reviewer - March 2019

Viva is a perfect destination for a party, or a group. During current times, and due to the ‘rule of 6’ we must only seat people in maximum table sizes of 6 people under a single booking, but we can seat groups who want to be seated adjacent to each other on tables close together. Parties cannot mix – but we can do our best to ensure you have a good time, whilst obeying the rules.
When booking dining as a group, we’re likely to need your menu options before your visit (for groups of 6 or more people.)
