Education links and opportunities


We maintain very strong links with schools and colleges in the local area.

Both Alison Watt and John Pattison are fully qualified teachers and enjoy working with young people.

We have a good relationship with Yorkshire Coast College, which is part of the Grimsby Institute Group and many of our actors, writers and musicians have received their initial industry training on specialist courses at the Westwood Campus in Scarborough. Through Beach Hut Theatre Company learners can gain industry experience in all aspects of working in theatre including, acting, stage management, set design, costume design, lighting and sound operation and front of house duties.

We value this relationship enormously and are committed to creating new artistic challenges and opportunities in the future for local young people.
