The Spotlight partnership scheme brings together like-minded people who share a vision for Hull that includes a producing theatre at its heart, and who want to support the vital work that Hull Truck Theatre does for the local community. Humberside Airport and KLM are the first companies to join the new scheme.
Members of the scheme receive a number of meaningful benefits, including priority tickets and VIP hospitality. They also have the chance to give back to their local community; Hull Truck Theatre will donate 35 tickets on behalf of Spotlight members to a community or school group to attend their annual Christmas show.
The Spotlight scheme is a fantastic legacy for Hull, ensuring that culture continues to have a positive impact on communities long after Hull UK City of Culture 2017.
Deborah Zost, Managing Director at Humberside Airport, says:
‘Humberside Airport is proud to sponsor Hull Truck Theatre’s Spotlight scheme in partnership with KLM. This scheme enables individuals to enjoy the theatre, who would otherwise be unable to access the arts. We are the gateway to the Humber region providing world-wide access with KLM, and our association with Hull Truck Theatre demonstrates our support to the local community.’
Warner Rootliep, AIR FRANCE KLM General Manager UK & Ireland, says:
‘At KLM we are proud of our strong commitment to Humberside International Airport and the surrounding local community, so we are thrilled to be involved with Hull Truck Theatre. We currently offer three daily flights to Humberside Airport to our hub at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, helping to connect the City of Culture to our worldwide network of exciting destinations.’
