Viva Blackpool is gearing up for a bumper Christmas season with not one, but two shows to keep their audience entertained.

The popular show bar will start its festive celebrations at the weekend with a Christmas Cabaret compered by Leye D and featuring turns by Phil Jeffries and X-Factor boot camp star Emma Wright.

The venue has sold more than 3,000 tickets for their events running all the way through December.

And there will be a special show on Christmas Day, complete with a five-course Christmas dinner,

Leye D, who has become something of a legend at the Blackpool venue said: “We see our amazing regulars every year, and then we have some faces we haven’t seen for a while as well as people who are completely new to the venue – it’s just a time of year I always look forward to.”

“The Christmas season has grown and grown and it’s changed over the years that I’ve been performing.”

“Last year we decided to put on two different styles of shows and it paid off with people being able to pick their style of night.

“Here here at Viva, It’s the complete night out.”

Viva managing director Martin Heywood said visitors were in for a Christmas treat with a new chef ready to serve festive goodies.

He said: “We’re all ready to raise the bar once again.

“Our business is all about creating a venue where people come back time and time again for that Viva experience of great entertainment, service and product.”
