Viva Blackpool Attends The GRAFTAS!

28 November 2017

Viva Blackpool is ecstatic to share a few highlights of this year’s GRAFTA’s and their amazing awards won on the night!


The GRAFTA awards, organised by DJ Paul O’Brien & Viva Blackpool is an awards ceremony that takes place every year to recognise all of Blackpool’s bars, pubs and clubs, whilst also rewarding the hardworking bar workers, teams and businesses for making Blackpool’s outstanding nightlife what it is today.


It was all smiles and laughter on the night, which took place on Sunday 26th November, as over 400 people, all from different entertainment venues, came together at the spectacular Viva Blackpool to let their hair down and party in style with a special night just for them, whilst also winning some awards.


Speaking of awards, not only did the Vegas venue in the heart of Blackpool host the event, but also managed to take away four awards on the night! From being the best dressed and the biggest party animal to being the hardest worker, not to mention Viva’s hilarious resident host Leye D Johns winning the award for ‘favourite entertainer’.


Leye D Johns, Entertainment Director at Viva, said:

“ What a lovely night it was. The GRAFTAS is always a great time and an event that all of us at Viva look forward to.  It was a pleasure hosting the awards for a third time and to win an astonishing four awards is just a fabulous bonus.

I think it’s fair to say that the awards are the perfect chance to give recognition to all the hard workers in the Blackpool nightlife scene, and to give them a much need celebration after a fantastic season all round. ”
