Awards recognition for Hull Truck Theatre

Hull Truck has been nominated for two UK Theatre Awards this year. UK Theatre is the UK’s leading theatre and performing arts membership organisation and they have made a shortlist of just three venues for both Digital Innovation and the Workforce Award. 

Additionally, we would like to extend our congratulations to Kudzai Sitima for her nomination in the Best Performance in a Play category. This is a well-deserved acknowledgement for her sterling performance as Phyllis ‘Princess’ in Princess & The Hustler, a co-production with Eclipse Theatre Company and Bristol Old Vic. The show was also performed at Hull Truck this March as part of it’s UK Tour.

Executive Director, Janthi Mills-Ward Tweeted: 'Go team @HullTruck, huge work has gone into both workforce development and digital innovation to seek new and exciting ways to make our work and industry ever more accessible. It’s great to see everyone’s hard work recognised #UKTAwards' 

In light of this aim to make their work more accessible, Hull Truck Theatre has recognised that price can be a barrier to young people attending the theatre, especially if it’s something new that they are not sure they will like. With that in mind, Hull Truck has picked a number of shows that they are offering at £6 each to under-26s, saving up to £18.50 per ticket.

To redeem the offer, those under 26 years of age should simply quote or enter promo code '6under26' when booking. T&Cs apply*
