The 7th annual REYTAs were celebrated last night in a glittering ceremony at The Spa Bridlington.
The theatre were recognised for their diverse artistic programme, their commitment to forging meaningful relationships with the local community, and for creating a cultural legacy for Hull and East Yorkshire.
There was such close competition in the category that the judges chose two joint winners – Hull Truck Theatre and RSPB Bempton Cliffs. Other attractions in the category included Yorkshire Coast Nature, Hull Land Train, Living Seas Centre Flamborough, Golf Coast Passport in Bridlington and The Yorkshire Belle in Bridlington.
There were a total of 75 finalists from Hull and East Yorkshire’s finest attractions, restaurants, cafes, pubs, hotels, accommodation providers and tourism experiences. They competed in 14 different categories over the course of the evening, where winners were presented with bespoke awards made by Hull College ceramic students.
REYTA winners can now compete in the Visit England Awards for the chance to be recognised for their contribution to national tourism.
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.
“We’re honoured to have won the Remarkable Visitor Attraction/Experience Award at this year’s REYTAs. Our staff work hard to ensure our venue is a beacon for East Yorkshire tourism, and it’s fantastic that their dedication has been recognised at these prestigious awards.”
