Yabba-Dabba-Dooooo!!

Viva Blackpool, the Vegas Venue in the heart of Blackpool, would like to offer local theatre groups, charities, schools or youth organisations the opportunity to give our stage prop 'Flintstone' car a new home.

Flintstones Car from Viva Blackpool

The car is currently in several pieces for storage purposes and will need to be re-assembled and made safe by the organisation who takes it. It was used as a stage prop in Viva's headline 2015 summer show and would make a fantastic talking point or addition to a variety of productions.

You'll be pleased to know the vehicle is exempt from road tax and is cheap to run however it may require an updated MOT ;-)
