During these times of great uncertainty, one thing for sure is that we, here at Viva Blackpool, plan to stand behind our amazing team - and to do this we need your support.
Earlier this month, we closed our doors to the Viva Blackpool and Viva Vegas Diner venues - and our teams faced a very uncertain future.
As a small independent business, the owners and directors are 100% committed to ensuring we look after our team members, by furloughing those who qualify to ensure they receive an income - but unfortunately, many of our entertainment cast and crew are 'self-employed' and slip through the net of immediate support.
These talented people will have to wait until June before receiving any financial help...
Therefore we’re asking for a bit of help right now, in return for a bit of future ‘love’ from the Viva cast and team…
We've come up with a series of 'Rewards' to help us 'payitforwards' - by helping us ensure our team are looked after during these troubled times, we'll ensure you get a special reward to look forward to, thanking you for your amazing support.
So, in exchange for your help right now, and as a way of saying thank you, we’ve created nine extra special ‘Rewards’ that we know will raise a smile, So, whether that’s a premier seat ticket including photograph with the cast for just £20, two premier seat tickets with a bottle of wine (Red or white? You choose!) for just £50 or even, your own private performance with our very own Leye D Johns and the wonderful Jersey Beats, the choice is yours! But whatever you go for, not only will you be getting great value, you’ll also be supporting our hard working team through these challenging times.
All the money pledged when purchasing our ‘Rewards’ will be used to support our cast and team through this period, be that their wages or training and development, with the aim of improving Viva Blackpool as a great place to work.
You can keep up-to-date with what the team are up to by checking out our regular ‘Broadcasts’ on our Facebook channel (www.facebook.com/viva.live.blackpool) where you’ll get to see and meet the team, as well as be kept entertained by our very own compere Leye D Johns!
We appreciate your help during this unpredictable period and with a little bit of support, we can’t wait to welcome you back to our place again soon!
Until then, please take care of yourselves and each other.
