Hunstanton Princess Theatre a sponsor of 2022 Lynn News Klimatech Education Awards
Hunstanton’s Princess Theatre takes this week’s sponsor stage in the 2022 Lynn News Education Awards, in association with Klimatech.
The awards ceremony will take place in the Barn at Knights Hill Hotel, Lynn on Thursday, July 21.
The Princess Theatre stated: “We’re delighted to be sponsoring the award for Student of the Year – Primary School. As a venue that houses creativity, we felt that this category connected to our theatre. We encourage students to visit our many productions, from exciting science experiments to our Christmas pantomime season. This winter, Cinderella takes the stage – we dedicate a large amount of these performances for primary schools exclusively.
“Our technical team have given backstage tours and half day workshops to primary schools, also offering work placements/work experience for secondary school pupils.
“We too understand the importance of education and hence align with the encouragement that the Education Awards has given towards pupils’ hard work, and for it to be recognised (especially through the recent difficulties).
“Our venue hopes to spark and inspire the young people of today, offer a moment of laughter, hope to continue to ignite their imaginations, and endeavour to keep the heart of the arts beating.”
