Spend, Spend, Spend The Musical

The story of Viv Nicholson


Performed by the Spotlight Company and directed by Catherine Terry, this is the story of Viv Nicholson who in 1961, before the Beatles, moonwalking and the mini skirt, won the first mega-jackpot on the football pools.

When the papers asked the housewife what she'd do with her new fortune, her answer turned her into a household name "I'm going to spend, spend, spend!"

Her rags to riches and back to rags story took her through five husbands, fast cars, bankruptcy and booze. She woke up spent.

The riveting musical charts the tragedy, the comedy and the love story that is the legend of Viv Nicholson.
