The Viva Awards

A night of celebration

What are the Viva Awards?

What are the Viva Awards?

Every year Viva holds an event for everyone who has been involved in Viva whether it is staff, volunteers, members, parents, family members and supporters. At this event we take time to look back on the year gone including all of our shows with the different groups, trips taken and any other events held by Viva. The evening always includes some entertainment from our different theatre groups from the youngest through to the wisest… This evening also provides Viva with the perfect opportunity to thank those who give up their time to be involved in our many  projects and activities.
