The winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony at The Spa Bridlington in 17 March this year.
Hull Truck Theatre recently scooped the Arts and Culture Award at the Welcome to Yorkshire White Rose Awards, the largest celebration of tourism in the UK.
Mark Babych, Hull Truck Theatre’s Artistic Director, says:
“We are thrilled to be one of the finalists in the Remarkable East Yorkshire Tourism Awards. Our staff work hard to ensure that our venue is a beacon for the arts in East Yorkshire. We have some stiff competition from businesses across the East Yorkshire region but we hope we have what it takes to be a winner!”
Andy Gray, tourism manager of Visit Hull and East Yorkshire, says:
“Once again we have been staggered by the number and quality of entries and the level of support we receive from local businesses in terms of sponsorship, which allows us to organise this prestigious event. The value of tourism to Hull and East Yorkshire continues to rise year on year and the quality of the visitor experience, including accommodation, is what makes us so successful.”
