After the success of our previous Heritage Lottery Funded (HLF) project, 'Rich Soil Rich Heritage', Viva has received £77,500 from HLF to deliver a community project called 'StreetLife 1939-1945'. Find out more...
A big well done to all of our Viva members and volunteers who put on another successful fundraising day at The Brook, Soham on Good Friday. We had plenty going on including games, crafts, face-painting, refreshments and an Easter egg tombola. A special shout out to our cake stall who did a fantastic job and were soon sold out! Viva raised a total of £500.00 that will be going towards our three summer shows: Abigail's Party, Avenue Q and Half a Sixpence. Find out more about our summer shows.
We did it! After four successful home shows at The Brook,Soham Viva took the whole Viva team and cast to The Shaw Theatre in London to perform 'Oliver!' and it was a great success. Well done to everyone involved. We could not have done it without all of the support from our local community so thank you!
